This is an important question.  I hope that I can help you to find
something that fits your needs.  I myself have recently had to go
looking for health insurance.  I understand that the information is
not that easy to obtain.

I am giving you these sites, some of which you have to put in your
personal information to actually obtain any quotes.  I am going to
post these.  If you can’t find the kind of information you want,
please ask me for more.

You mentioned the county that you live in.  Most of the web sites need
a zip code to find certain information.  I used the zip code 12401. 
Some of the addresses given below will be based on that zip code.

I found this page that has quotes on catastrophic life insurance.  I
put you in as best I could, and got really high premiums.

The basics of catastrophic health insurance

Marsh Affinity

I think you should try looking at  the insurance buyers guide.
This site has information on Catastrophic coverage, and it gives you a
link at the bottom to talk to their insurance specialist.  There you
have to put in your individual information in order to get the kind of
quotes that you need.

I thought the following web sites might be of interest to you.

New York State Insurance Department

Blue Cross Blue Shield of New York

Free Agent Nation

You can get health insurance quotes at these sites: from fidelity investments


This is an office that offers what they call “critical illness
insurance”.  They don’t have quotes on line.  But, this is the address
of a company near you.
2678 SOUTH RD 
MapQuest Locator 
Phone: (845) 452-4870 
Fax: (845) 452-5970 

I found this page for health plans available in New York.  However,
these are HMO’s and PPOs.  And, they tend to be expensive.

New York State Insurance Department.

I ended up going with USA healch company.  But, I opted for more than
just catastrophic care.

I hope this helps.
