if you find one keep me posted. my girl is looking also since she graduated in dec she got kicked off her mom's and she isnt working full time due to an internship shes doing.

we were looking the other day and the prices are outrageous unless you want a 3-5,000$ deductible



p.s. or you can just wait for obama. he's got all our health care covered

that's a lot cheaper than the medical bills if you're doing trackdays....

, 3k may be the ambulance fee from TWS (Texas World Speedway) to College Station.

Seriously consider doing the COBRA offering. It should be very close to your company coverage. It's never worth skimping on medical insurance.

My fiance left her job and was going to do the cobra, but yeah it was like $400 per month. She called her State Farm agent and got temporary coverage for like $80 a month.

oh, and they offered coverage for me too, even though we're not married yet and Im not on her insurance yet. We did get a big package quote from her local agent, and plan on sending most all of our insurance business to her so maybe she just pulled some strings.
Either way, probably worth a phone call.

Honestly, I don't know the exact terms of the coverage, but it seems pretty thorough. My fiance's mom clued us into it, and shes checks all that shyt out pretty well.

I know it doesnt have any of the optional coverage like dental, vision etc. I dont want to mislead you, but its probably worth checking out.

You might try Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas. They do take a while to process a signup though.

I think it is www.bcbstx.com/ratefinder for their website rate quotes.
