I have had the same individual California Blue Cross PPO insurance for the last 10+ years and I just moved to the east coast on July 1. My California insurance is paid up to the end of June.

As I understand it, I can get individual health insurance in my new state just as long as I had health insurance when I left California. I have not purchased health insurance in my new state yet(I believe I have 2 months to do it; it has been 1 month).

To further complicate matters I plan on moving to a different country in a couple months(and I plan on staying in the other country for several months).

Should I even bother getting health insurance in my new state given I will be moving to a different country soon? For example, if I don't have health insurance when I move out of the US, then will it be hard to get health insurance when I move back into the US?

What are my options for US health insurance when I am frequently moving between states and sometimes even out of the country?
