Yes. It costs me $1100 a month but I refuse to have any of us be uninsured.

Wow. Ours is less than $300.00 a month for full coverage for a family of 4. I know we are lucky. That's even including our life insurance and all that other extra stuff plus my husband's Aflac. I'm not even sure what we pay for medical alone.

Dang. Aflac is another $60 a month and life ins for DH and I is almost $90, although he was still smoking when we got that and once he's been smoke free for 6 months, we can get it adjusted. I think part of the problem is the law firm I worked for was tiny and the other 4 employees and their spouses all had crazy health issues. I'm about to look into buying my own 'cause our premiums are just ri-donk-ulous.

Yes. I would never be without it. I am diabetic (have been since I was 10) and without insurance I could not even almost afford all that I need to stay healthy

Goodness. He informed me that his company pays for Aflac...lol. We don't even pay for it. 

Yeah, he works at Weatherford. It's a huge oil company and they have tons of employees so we get off like that. Plus we are umbrella'd under Blue Cross Blue Sheild of Texas even though we are in Louisiana and that lowers our costs a lot.
