Oh I want to scream and puke. We had our annual insurance meeting this morning for healthcare. Our rates went up 25%!!!!! I will be paying over $200 a week just for myself and my DD.

 How do health insurance companies and business owners expect us to pay our bills and provide for our children when I all this health insurance coming out of my check. I already live paycheck to paycheck as is. Did anyone else's insurance go up as well??? I won't be adding my fiancé next year when we get married. If I do that, I will be paying over $400 a week. It's CRAZY!!! Ok I can go on and on but I will stop!!!

Yep, we have to completely switch our health insurance to an HSA with a high deductible. :(

We pay $250/mo or so for the full family with Tricare Reserve Select. I don’t know how civilians pay the ridiculous amounts.

We have a union contract. They can’t raise the rates in the middle of the contract and we don’t really pay a lot....

Thankfully so far no, we pay $54 a week for a family plan, $600 per person deductible or $2000 max for a family, before my husband changed jobs we were paying $178 bi-weekly, also for a family plan and similar deductibles.

$200 a week isn't too bad. Many people have been paying at least that for the last 15 years.

But, no ours is still free... for now.
