    It looks like I may be without health insurance for awhile, so I am looking to see what I can afford in the Seattle area. It occurs to me with all the self employed folks here that I may be able to get recommendations both for and against providers.

    Ballard - heap your wisdom on me, I am all yours. What self-purchase health plans do you like? I DO need one where I can actually see a doctor and not just an "in case" plan. I have been spoiled by a PPO, but know I will probably have to go back to an HMO in order to get affordable coverage. Uber points for a PPO though. I prefer to be able to use Swedish as my ER, since it is so close. I'd also prefer month-to-month rather than a contract.
