How do artists and writers in Los Angeles get health insurance? [more inside]
I'm an American living in France on a long-stay visitor's visa (I'm here as an artist in residence working on comics in Angoulême). To get my visa, I had to prove I had health insurance. At the time of my visa application, I had American health insurance which covered only emergencies abroad, so I assumed that if anything came up, I would pay out of pocket here in France and then, well, go home if anything really grave came about. I also bought travelers insurance from World Nomads to cover repatriation (necessary for the visa). Now, because of reasons that I wont go into here, I have lost my American health insurance and am left with only the travelers insurance, which is really not sufficient. I'd like to stay in France and am planning to renew my visa for another year, so I want to make sure everything is in order. I'd also like to be covered! Is it possible to buy French health insurance as a foreigner who is technically a "non-resident"? I've googled a bit and found some links to various companies who seem to do just this, but I would like to hear from others who have done the same or who know something about it.

We have a property with a house and garage, and we are going to have the unrepairable house torn down. Our insurance company says they can't insure an outbuilding, because they only insure houses. We really don't want to leave the house standing, but the garage is new and we'd like to keep it. Any suggestions?

Car buying out of state: I have a NJ license, am staying with my parents for a while in NH, but my job will be in MA and I intend to also live there eventually. I need to buy a car to commute to work ASAP. I haven't had a car in 4 years. What is the best way to proceed in this situation, i.e., should I get a NH license right now, buy the car in MA with my NJ license, no idea. Will the dealer provide temporary tags and insurance, if so, for how long? I changed my address with the post office but I still own an apartment in NJ and I don't want to start paying rent ( and moving to MA) until that sells, which might take over a month.

What are some good resources to learn about the property and casualty insurance industry? Looking for some online (free) or written (books I can get from the library) that can give me some basic, conversational understanding around terms, systems, process flows, etc. Current level of knowledge: familiar with terms, but not comfortable speaking about them.
