Does anyone have any experience with purchasing health insurance through the Freelancer's Union? Any feedback on the process and level of satisfaction with coverage would be appreciated.

My COBRA coverages from my last job runs out in November so I need to start figuring out what the best option for directly purchasing individual coverage is. Since I am 'freelancing' (mostly a euphemism for being unemployed) I thought I'd look at the Freelancers Union for options. I have never purchased insurance as an individual before so this whole process is confusing. Does anyone currently have this coverage? If so, what is your level of satisfaction, what should I look out for, why did you choose this over a purchase from a company like Blue Cross or Kaiser, is it a good deal, etc etc?
I'm at the beginning of this so any and all helpful information is appreciated. If it helps, I currently have Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey via COBRA. I cannot convert that to individual as I live in New York City (my previous employer was in NJ).
