OK, who els is appauled by rising health insurance cost's ?
My Blue Cross, PPO went up 24% this year !
The cost of living only went up 2%
How is this outragous increase warranted ?
Prescriptions co pay gone up, deductables from $100-$250 no longer exist, they are now $500- $2000

There has to be something we can do, drug companies are earning record profit's, ceo record bonus's....
I am single, my company i work for cover's a large quantity of the cost for me, i do pay 37.00 a week though.
I really feel bad for families, that are paying 120-150 a week for insurance !

what about health insurance you buy for yourself if you're self employed, how much is that a year?
comparable coverage to a PPO from an employer....
Instagator, any input?

Ummm....Max, are you talking about per MONTH? I wanted to get Blue Cross (through our very own, ever so knowledgeable Instigator) and it was over 900 PER MONTH....
I WISH I could get Health Insurance for $37 a week, Eddie...I know....you're just going to say....you wish you had my tax benefits....ok ya wanna know how much THAT bill was?

And just think...I am one of the people that helps these healthcare companies give the CEOs larger bonuses...

it would cost you approx 125 a week for you and your kids where i work,...
problem, you need to close up your buisness and work here full, time, take a pay cut, have hours set for you, work for someone else and all.
these type of jobs, you got insurance, full boat, now the drill you there too....
so what would you rather do ? stay where your at, or work for someone else, and still pay, with all your perks gone !

by the way, you are a weak weak woman !

just kiddin ya !!!!! i think it is still funny !

And the issue with health insurance is the ONLY ISSUE I have with being in business for myself...yeah, I got a tax bill. But not too bad for not paying any ALL YEAR...


I won't have to pay my Ex's health insurance in a few more months...maybe he'll get A JOB and cover the kids... oh boy. Never Mind.

Perks of being a weak, worthless self-sufficient woman.....

We pay our own insurance........it sucks, big time. I could have a much bigger boat and new pickup truck. I don't mind paying for good health insurance......I just don't like getting screwed (by them anyway!).

My guy is self employed and pays $137 per month for his insurance. It's not that great, but if he were to end up in the hospital, they will pay for the bulk of it.
I'm not a Clinton Fan, but it would be nice to have healthcare just for being a citizen! Everyone always compares it to Canada's but in reality, Canada's isn't bad, just ask Canehdian Girl, no one ever compares it to Japan, Sweden, Netherlands, or Australia. The United States is the only industrialized nation without universal healthcare in the world!

Yeah, I'm talking about for a "single self employed person". No kids or other dependents......thank goodness..... sounds like an extra house payment for you family folks!!!

:::::::::::::::::::::::::
Puppetshow, what do you get for that $325
and from who?
I know a persons age and pre-existing conditions also come into the picture too.
:::::::::::::::::::::::::
Moneyshot, I'd like more info on that $137 too please.

Isn't someone on here an insurance person? Whoever it is, talk to them, they MUST be able to get you a decent rate. God forbid something happen to you, how will you pay the bills??
