If you are legally in the United States, you are eligible for COBRA if you lost your employer-sponsored health insurance.

It’s not exactly clear from the details you’ve given, but it sounds like you are looking for a short-term option. Those available, as well as other alternative plans to COBRA, which are much more affordable.
