They cancelled me

Lucent cancelled my health insurance as of 5/31. As a widow (under 65) I foolishly thought I was safe. Any ideas on where to look for new coverage? I am already pounding the keyboard.

Update- After posting this I went back and reviewed the information provided to me. After my husband's passing they said I had three years of coverage at which point I'd no longer be covered (call it "widow brain"). Lucent lived up to their word and I was able to purchase insurance BECAUSE I had a cobra termination notice. Continuing fairness here, they did offer me indemnity insurance but who would want that if they have another choice?

Did you try Obama Care, or is it too late?

NJ Gal, how did you make out? Were you able to sign-up for Obama Care?
