got VA coverage for myself with fairly cheap copays

I pay $34.60 a year for the family.

I am retired military and give them $460 a year for Tricare Prime. The company I work for gives me $8.20 a week since I don't have company insurance. Fifty-two weeks X $8.20 is $426.40. Works out pretty good for me.

Can anyone recommend a particular company, I'll probably have to self insure soon.

started out about 7 years ago with Blue Cross Blue Shield for 5 family members - at $207/month.

Pretty good plan. (A out of A,B,C)

Last year it was $605. this year it is $587. (Now on Plan B of A,B,C). Still with BCBS.

Well in excess of 100% increase in price and less coverage each year.

Self employed LLC - Healthy - no smokers etc. 2 adults and 3 kids

Vote John Edwards.............................. That ambulance chasing feukstick if you would like to see this number go up! ;-)

it's paid by work, but it amounts to 120/month blue cross/blue shield ppo

Think I'm putting in about $25-40 per paycheck for my company PPO plan. Can't remember exactly. As a young, single guy it doesn't much matter to me so long as I have something.

I used to pay nothing in retirement. Now I have co-pays (like $5-20 for prescriptions and office visits) of various amounts and pay $180 per month. I'm not sure what it would cost to buy my coverage on the open market. I should find out so the wife realizes it ain't free. I'm guessing around $4-500.

My work pays 100% of my premium. My son is $177 a month and if I want my wife on it, it's another $430+ a month for her. She has her own insurance.
Link Posted: 9/9/2004 1:56:20 PM EDT
About $140 a month.

$25 of that comes out of my check. The rest is paid by the company.
Link Posted: 9/9/2004 1:56:45 PM EDT
Paid $15 a month last year. The same coverage this year is going to run $100 a month. This is for a single person with PPO coverage and a $1,000 out of pocket cap.

Kaiser Permanente, full coverage HMO for myself: $220 a month.

The one that pissed me off is that my employer recently made the amount of benefit you get depend on your salary.

Salary below X thousand, pay Y for a single person get a 600 deductible

Salary above X thousand, pay Y for a single person, get a 2500 deductible

Too much - no wife, no dependents, haven't been to a MD or filled a prescription in about 10 years.

Shouldn't complain, I guess.
