Do you belong to any professional associations? They sometimes offer insurance to their members.

I’ve been hunting for health insurance and found that you can get great recommendations by going to healthinsurance.org.

My husband was able to find insurance at http://www.ehealthinsurance.com/ when he was between jobs.  It is always going to be more expensive to get insurance when you aren’t with a group unfortunately because most employers pay half or more of the bill for you so you don’t see how much it really costs.  I would consider a high deductible plan and setting up an HSA.  The premiums would be lower because you need to pay more out of pocket for medical expenses.  With an HSA (health savings account), you can put money in and it isn’t subject to taxes and if you don’t use it by the end of the year, the balance rolls over and when you reach retirement age, you can take it out without penalties.

It’s good to at least have something now in case an accident happens.  I hope you get a good plan when you two move to Minnesota!
