By The Way my health care is through United HealthCare if that makes a difference

Ugh health insurance..the whole thing blows!  Luckily I started a job recently that pays for my health insurance, and will also pay for my future familes.  I just got really lucky because last year at this time I had NO health care and a lot of medical bills!  I feel for everyone on this issue!!

I unfortunately somehow missed the fact that my insurance was going to increase this year from paying about $130 to $185 a month. I was confused as to why it went up and I was told I got an email about it…so now I pay $185 a month for pretty good coverage for medical, crappy dental and no vision. it basically SUCKS. and the next “window” to switch insurances is in october. UGH.

Interesting how different some are! But I guess we probably all get different things too. I’m not sure how much my employer pays, but I pay about $20 a paycheck (paid every 2 weeks) for health, dental and eye care insurance. It is Just me, not a family plan – when I add the FH it will be triple.

My PPO plan (most amazing plan ever from BlueCross BlueShield TN which includes dental, mental, and eyecare) was a deduction of $17.32 from each paycheck.  However, after I lost my job, I went on COBRA and that payment went to $368.90 a month.  I filed for the gov’t subsidy and now pay $78.64 a month.

wow! i need to switch careers or at least switch companies! I pay $180 a month for just hmo. its pathetic but i really need it since I need blood tests and doctors visits and refills on several prescriptions every month.  When i was laid off three years ago I remember I was paying $630 a month for cobra. it was outrageous…but then i see how much my specialist visits, the blood tests and prescriptions were…i think it was about $1800 a month so i still had to do the cobra.

I have the most expensive medical, vision and dental plan offered by my work and I pay $15. My Fiance pays nothing. We are very lucky, we have amazing plans at minimal to no cost to us. But not everyone is so lucky, we are in desparate need of health care reform. Health insurance should be a right not a privledge. Lets all keep our fingers crossed for Obama’s health care plan.

I pay nothing but a co-pay when going to the doctor, not even anything at the pharmacy. So I am very blessed, when work gets tough it is definately something to think about.

Lets just say we are going to be paying a ton when we get married. Fiance is a type 1 diabetic, so of course we get screwed right away with that. Then I have a history of needing surgeries for a medical condition, so that isn’t going to make anything any better. We’re dreading it 🙁

Gulp. I’m really hoping I’m reading my policy wrong. Currently as a single I pay nothing and I have a pretty good plan. FI’s is pretty cheap but his plan sucks. So the plan was to add him but I’m not so sure because if I’m reading the stupid chart correctly it would be RIDICULOUS. Good thing our insurance guy is coming into the office soon!
