"Lets say a person can call it quits with 2m at 55. Does anyone out there have any good ideas on how a person can get affordable but good insurance. Assume that the their pass employers do not offer any ins. "


I did a cursory investigation and found that some states require insurers to offer group rates. Some states are more favorable to insurers and permit the insurers to offer only individual medical insurance which can be more expensive.

I know Iowa, Ohio, and Conneticutt are not good states to find reasonable group medical insurance rates. I found that Missouri is very good if you can transfer from a group (even if it's your employer) policy.

I hope others who have retired can address the medical insurance issue.
