I just posted an article in the "News & Articles" section of the site. It is titled the same as this post. Here is a summary of the article:

"According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, 21 percent of people who apply for health insurance on their own get turned down, charged a higher price for their policy, or are offered a plan that excludes coverage for their pre-existing medical condition. So what is the best route to take to getting health insurance if you've already been diagnosed? In this article, a health reporter gives five tips for getting coverage, including using COBRA, finding assistance through your state, and becoming a "group of one."

**Just wondering if any of you have ever used any of these ideas to obtain insurance and if they worked for you?**

Here is the link to the article.
