Question: I live in Florida and I'm moving with my wife and two sons to Colorado when I start my new job in September. My new employer doesn't offer benefits so I need to get my own insurance. I don't want to be without insurance. My question is how can I get insurance in Colorado when I'm still living in Florida?

Answer: I hear that you want to ensure that you and your family have continuous coverage. The best way to go about this would be to keep your current coverage so that it runs through August. You will then need to buy short term coverage starting in September so that you are covered continuously. Once you have a new address you should then apply for coverage with a Colorado carrier. In the meantime I would recommend running quotes and gathering information about the plan you would like to apply for so that you are prepared once you arrive in Colorado. The pricing may well change so you should double check the quotes again nearer the time of your move.
