    I meant to mention that in my talk about portability and the ACA making it easier for people to switch between jobs but I forgot too. Need better proof reading and editing plus more time I guess. I was running out of lunch break/free time when I wrote this.

    Thanks for pointing it out.

    It is another reason why state by state will not work.

    State A sets up a system that covers pre-existing conditions period and then state B says no if your coverage has lapsed for more then say 120 days then you are SOL.

    I think the current coverage gap is 66 days or something.

    If I get a job offer in State B but I live in state A and I have a serious pre-existing condition the odds of me taking the job in State B are pretty slim.

    It is a risk and depending on my situation I may not be able to take that risk.
