You are open to essentially any insurance you want if you are going to be paying out of your own pocket, but that will be ridiculously expensive. Your best bet is to talk to the management at your store and see about going to "full-time" status and receiving benefits. The drawback is that, as I understand it, most stores like Target and Wal-Mart hire most of their employees as "part-time" so they can avoid having to pay out health insurance. If that is the case, and if insurance is important to you, then it might be time for a career change. Keep your eye on the classifieds. Also, most personnel services offer "temp-to-hire" positions where you work for the service for about 6 weeks, then you go full-time with benefits with the real employer.
Being a pharmacy technician and insurance billing specialist, I deal with health insurance companies all day. This sounds a lot like my own story.
