    I'm in Va., if that's relevant, and 61 with diabetes and a heart valve that cost a pig its life... but saved mine!

    (See, I could retire before 65 IF I could swing a health policy for a couple years.)

    A lot of professional organizations also offer group coverage... I got a life insurance policy through the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).

    I'm lucky enough to have a wife with great health insurance through her employer.

    Commit a state crime in California and get thrown in jail. The 9th Circuit Court ruled even death row prisoners are eliglible for organ transplants. That is a coworker,s plan for post retirement health care if he is in poor health. he also feels the pen would be preferable to any of the nursing homes we've seen in various jurisdictions.
