I'm 61 and have had 3 cancer episodes in the past 5 years, one of them breast cancer. I'm in great shape now, but am wondering how... once I leave PA, where I'm insured, to get insurance coverage when we're on the road.
Any and all wisdom, ideas, experience, etc., please. Thanks much.

It would depend on your medical insurance provider's policy for out of state coverage.

A call to them would be the best thing.

Most of us are covered no matter what state we happen to be in.

I need to add that we're fulltiming, so I won't have the PA address after mid-April. Otherwise, the health insurance wouldn't be an issue. Thanks.

Conventional wisdom says that if you presently have health insurance, keep it and find out how to get health services on the road, if you need it. Learn what the insurance providers process is and follow it.

If you do not presently have health insurance, your "pre-existing cancer episodes" may prevent you from getting insurance. Again, checking with health insurance companies is the best way, in my opinion, to find out what is available for you, considering your specific circumstances.

The next step is find the cost and coverage conditions for your new domicile state if you can keep your same insurance.

Many times the cost/coverage of medical insurance will determine your choice of which state to "move" to for your domicile.

I might caution you to be very careful. I changed to a SD address and now the quotes that I am getting for health coverage is $1,000.00/mount and not that great a coverage.
