Have you recently checked into the exchanges in your location? If you are still unemployed, you may be able to get coverage at a greatly subsidized rate that will go in effect on January 1st. Check into the Affordable Care Act (ACA) at www.HealthCare.gov.
Thanks for commenting on my blog. I'm a recent college grad who's unemployed so I don't even have health insurance. I think my dad looked into it for me a while back, but the prices are astronomical out of pocket at my weight. I've got to do my part and lose the extra for many reasons now.
