oh no worries, i don't think you're nosey. i get asked that a lot. =)
as for health coverage, i'm lucky because my husband is in the military so i'm covered regardless. i don't have to really worry about privatized health care cuz the military health coverage is pretty much socialized.
in any case, here it's all privatized. i'm still rather confused to be honest, about how it works here. PPO, HMO...don't understand it. but for you, will you be moving here on a work visa? or through marriage? (hope i'm not being nosey by asking!! =) )
