Google a search for "guaranteed issue" plans and policies online. Depending on the state where you live, these limited benefit plans can offer you some form of coverage when you don't qualify for traditional plans.

In the state of Florida, these type of plans will become available in January 2009. Google a search for "Cover Florida" for details.

PCIP is federal health insurance for people with pre-existing conditions. It is inexpensive, about $200/mo depending on your age. Eligibility and premiums are not based on income.

State assigned risk (guaranteed issue) plans cost $600-1000/mo. FL and TN have plans that are inexpensive, but have extremely low annual and lifetime maximums of $10K and 25K.

You should work with a health insurance broker to find the best plan for your company. It depends on the number of people you hire, the company you decide to insure through, and a number of other factors.

Absolutely - the insurance company would view you as a 'high risk' because of your DUI. Any insurance company can refuse to insure you - they don't have to give a reason !

There's quite a difference between Life Insurance and Health Insurance, and it's important to know what you pay for and what you get. Sometimes you see life insurance and health insurance lumped together because of the fact that they both insure the person (rather than the car, the house, etc). The difference is that if you insure your health, with health insurance, then if you become ill then the insurance company pays for your medical treatment, whereas with life insurance, if you die then the insurance company pays your nearest and dearest and those who depend on you. They can't replace you, but they can provide financial help to cover the losses incurred because of your absence. If you have a job that pays a salary then in the case of a life insurance claim the insurance company pays so your family aren't left in stuck.
