Our Health Insurance

-- by Dave Johnson

We get health insurance through my wife's job. They pay hers, I have to pay for mine. MY share has been a little over $600 a month. It just jumped to $850, and she now has to pay $75. So we went from $600 to $925 a month. This is WITH employer participation. And drug co=pays are maybe another $100 per month.

Health insurance for the two of us would be about $1700 a month -- $20,400 a year -- if the company didn't pay anything. But if we didn't do this, we risk losing our house and everything else if one of us gets sick.

This is so CEOs and other executives of health insurance companies can have private jets and multiple houses.

What is YOUR health insurance story?
