Health insurance in Zurich without a job

Hello everyone,
My situation is that I finished my PhD in Basel and I have a Swisscare at this moment. I will move to Zurich from June and I need buy a new health insurance since the Swisscare will expire.
Questions:
1. Can I still buy Swisscare but I'm not a PhD student any more?
2. I don't have job now, can I get some insurance refund?
3. What would be the best option for the health insurance?

Thanks a lot in advance!

1. No
2. Maybe? (I remember reading something about it a while ago somewhere on the forum, but well.. search function to the rescue)
3. Health Insurance FAQs

You may apply to your community for assistance with your health insurance payment, however this is considered social assistance and may have an impact on you work permit status.
