Greetings, BenderFool, and welcome. You asked:

If I retire at age 62, what are my options for securing reasonable health care coverage ?

You can continue under your old employer's plan for 18 months under COBRA rules. Sometimes your employer will let you keep your plan as long as you want in retirement. If not, there's still the COBRA route for 18 months. You can also get an individual policy, which will probably cost you more than the group coverage you now have on the job. If you're under COBRA, you will have to do that anyway when that coverage ends. You won't become eligible for Medicare until age 65, so those are your only options until you reach that age.
