Any recommendations on companies who offer great health coverage.

Are there any to stay away from? Ones with better reputations?

Coming from Canada so I wanted to get some feedback

Wondering that myself. Leaving NY and my mediocre job and heading for Boca. 43 years in NY were enough.

Are there better deals than getting COBRA for myself, my wife, and my two 14 month olds? COBRA is big bucks.

How much is your COBRA? Isn't it being subsidized by your former employer? Employer pays 65% of the premium and receives tax credits for doing so, I believe. Also, the length of time that one can be covered under COBRA has been extended.

If I leave the company voluntarily (which is what I'm doing), its not subsidized at all. I'm covered for 18 months.

Cost of Cobra is apprx. 1k a month. Pretty, pretty pricey.

Checked Ehealthinsurance and Blue Cross as well. Numbers are better, but there's a high deductable, and I'm not sure if I'm covered for pre-existing conditions, which is an issue.
