No politician has made any statement showing an intention to change the existing regulatory environment. The only pronouncements so far regarding health care has been Gov Scott announcing that Fl will not make any effort to put in place PCIP. IMHO someone at the Fl DOFS is BS'ing you.
Might very well be true.

Regardless, the one-life premium for me, at 55 years old, would be over $1500/month. For me, that's a deal killer (as I would imagine it would be for the vast majority of people, even those that are lucky enough to have retired so early.)

Some states have long waiting lists for their special HI programs.

What about HIPAA?? I thought that kicks in after COBRA ends, I think you need a denial letter from an insurance company to qualify, rates run about 2X you normal age group.
