I wish I had kept my insurance up at that time!!

I have to agree. I saw medical bills eat up some family members, and I went through a similar experience. I was fortunate that mine was only a few thousand dollars. I now pay a pretty penny for my coverage, but I consider it a necessity. I really don't think the risk of going without insurance is worth what you could save. One serious illness or accident, and you can literally be decades behind where you are now.
