Health Insurance for 200 a month? GOD is in the details here...if such a thing was available, and had any decent coverage, there would be zillions of people lined up to buy it. Consider me skeptical....

There are plenty of those plans on the net, for the short term it's a better option than having no insurance or opting for the more expensive COBRA.
I have to agree with desertdawg on this. "God in in the details," indeed.

The real issues to consider are "decent coverage," "short term," and low cost/month. Every low cost policy I've seen on the net lacks coverage for high cost catastrophic events - exactly why most people are interested in health coverage to start with. And such expenses are typically NOT "short term."

Throw in the exemptions for not covering pre-existing conditions (even if undiagnosed), I'm also skeptical such policies are worth the toilet paper they're written on.

What a piece of work!

He signs out a Exec Order that gives Terrorists
constitutional rights, closes a facility that
will lead to those 250 murdering thugs to be
housed on American Soil and if he has his way about
it returned to the battlefield to fight again -
on the other hand he signs out a Exec order that
allows funding for abortions which will undoubtedly
lead to the death of hundreds of thousands of
innocent unborn children (of course their mostly
from Third World countries)- which in the long
run might be his tactic on fighting terrorism.

How? It's a pdf document form the US Govt on a govt website. That's not to say that a firewall or virus scanner may ID it as a potential threat, a common mistake in this day of 'better safe than sorry' network admin.

It's for the "short term". It is not an insurance that you stay with for life. It is meant for the interim, until a person can find a job that offers insurance coverage.
