The general public tends to believe that group insurance costs less than individual insurance but that is not true. Individual health insurance is actually much less expensive than group insurance. Individual insurance can cost 10% to 40% less than group insurance depending on age.
The key with individual insurance is passing medical underwriting in order to get the policy in the first place. Once the policy is obtained, it CAN NOT be canceled regardless of future health. The degree/amount of underwriting done depends on the company doing the underwriting.
