My premiums actually went down by about $20/month. Everything else (deductible, copays, coverage) remained the same.

Sorry yours tripled! That's awful!

Mine would have gone up about $10/bi-weekly if I hadn't cancelled it. Ds and I are both on dh's plan and he pays less for all 3 of us than what I would have paid for just ds and I.

Sorry they tripled yours! That's nuts!

I got a 4% raise, but insurance increased enough to eat up all of that and then go up $900 a year on top of that. :(  Co-pays for doctor's visits went up last year, and stayed the same this year, but prescriptions went up this year.

If they did, it wasn't by much. Our insurance is through my husband's company. The insurance premiums at my company went up a little.

 oh my goodness! mine did go up, but to make up for it, the company is offering incentives to earn extra cuts in it.

I don't know because they come out of DH's check.  He didn't say anything, though.  I did notice that copays and other stuff went down.  No copay for birth control, only $20 for the Essure procedure, $0 for my annual exam (pap).

Mine went up thirty dollars and I had to drop my husband off my insurance which sucked but gotta pay bills. Not to mention my state is trying to come up with this new plan that takes out more money then the federal did ugh.

I think mine stayed the same actually. But on e I have this baby my rates will increase over $200 a month because I need to move from single plus one to family. Hopefully SOs insurance kicks in before then
