About half of all medical businesses (doctor, dentist, vision-related, tests) will take patients without health insurance, you just have to call ahead to find out if they do then pay up front.  The major difference is big-ticket stuff like surgeries, which may be refused if you can't pay, and if you develop or are diagnosed with a condition then when you do get insurance again it may count as an existing condition.  Also a pregnancy while uninsured is a mess.

 

You can, of course, buy minimal insurance if you can afford it - was something like 4-5k per year last I heard.
