  • I checked on line and this is what I found: Your share is calculated by your income less any insurance premium payments (if any), less $934 (for 3 people). The difference is what you have to pay "out-of-pocket" at the beginning of each month before insurance starts paying.

  • Have you looked in to NON-Insurance Benefits? They cost MUCH less! We only pay $39.95/mo for medical, dental, vision, Rx, Hospital and some other stuff...
