In brief: Mainly the same
Single women don't usually have any different issues with getting health insurance.
Depending on the company and the way they calculate their risk, sometimes single women can be a better insurance risk because they can be healthier.The biggest challenges for anyone in getting insurance is if you have a preexisting condition, or risk factors since insurance is "for profit" and their shareholders.
