Q: My wife and I are retired and live in New Hampshire. I am 65 and on Medicare with a supplemental insurance while my wife is 63 and has a COBRA health policy that will run out three months before she is 65.

A: Short term health insurance is now available in New Hampshire and this seems like the obvious solution. See the "Secure STM" products at .
