in…sure…ance?

I might be possibly maybe losing my insurance soon. I think I'm going to go on a shopping spree with this knowledge. I'll get new prescriptions (antibiotics are free if I go out to NJ these days!), have lots of blood drawn (some stored for safe keeping), I'll get shot up all over, and maybe I'll have a hip replaced. You know, just in case I need one anyway in the future.

Do I COBRA, or don't I COBRA? Do I risk bankruptcy, or do I go for catastrophe (!) insurance? I sure as hell can't afford the Freelancers' Union's less-than spectacular offerings, so maybe I'll just take that temporary risk of vulnerability and see what lady luck throws at me.
