OT - health insurance for unemployed in CO?

Since I seem to know quite a few unemployed kayakers I figured I'd ask here ...

I need health insurance while I finish up my grad degree (I no longer qualify for CU student insurance) and until I get a job.

Any info on affordable health insurance with decent coverage?

You can try "Fortis Health Insurance", I used this when I finished school and was unemployed! It seemed to be the cheapest I could find! Good luck

These sites look helpful. I've been meaning to look more closely at them for months now:

I have Rocky Mountain Health Care earlier I had Blue Cross Blue shield. Both were under 100 per month and will keep you out of a bind. I just had shoulder surgery and it is taking the brunt of the bills. Good luck.

Just make sure that its not "Buffalo" insurance - that type that is so limited in coverage that they only reimburse if you're trampled by (something as improbable as) a herd of buffalo.
