I should have moved to Canada while I still could

I just found out that in six months, I'm going to lose my student health insurance. There's no COBRA on student insurance, as far as I can tell. I have a pre-existing condition of a sort that will, I think, totally rule out getting private insurance. Assuming that I don't find a job with benefits, is there any way that I can stay insured? If this is a huge priority, which it is, then are there better or worse states for me to move to in order to maintain my insurance status? How on earth do I figure out how to negotiate this mess?

insurance lapse...

U.S. insurance law: I've been told that, after having group coverage through an employer, if that coverage lapses for more than three months, the next insurer can declare anything previously covered to be a pre-existing condition (and so not covered.) Is this correct? Thanks.
