Thanks for the link to the high risk pool. It looks like these plans can make sense for people who are older and in higher risk groups. For instance, if you can live with Kaiser (no pun intended:-) the high risk insurance for a 65 year old single is $732/month, while the blue shield policy I own for a 65 year old single in tier 5 would be $1306 ($2500 deductable).
It appears to me local governmental regulations and availability of health care may become a Major deciding factor in where we move once the kid is out of high school:-)
