    Hi bmelissa,

    I'm in California and looking to stay here. The good news being here is that a resident is allowed up to 36 months of COBRA coverage. Haven't looked at the state's insurance programs since passage of the Obama's healthcare act. However, I do know that the state has two programs, the PCIP (Pre-Existing Conditions Insurance Plan) and MRMIP (Major Risk Medical Insurance Plan) for people with PECs of which I will be looking over with a fine tooth comb. Also, don't know how things will be come 2014, my target year to start nursing school. So can I presume that you're covered through your state's PCIP?
