Medical Insurance

So just to top off a crappy day, I get home to find my new Kaiser renewal booklet for next year, RAISING MY MONTHLY PAYMENT TO $178!

A HUNDRED and SEVENTY EIGHT dollars!

This shit went from $90, to $123, and now this!?

Who in their right mind can afford this shit??!!

Does anyone else pay this type of outrageous amount?
Or maybe can point me to somewhere cheaper?

* runs off to kill people

I've always gotten my medical insurance taken care of by my dad...his work place covers me while I'm a college student...but I graduate in December.

I can't afford insurance, dammit...

I know, it's gotten totally ridiculous...... My hubby's insurance doubled over about 3 years, and he never even met his deductible each year! I just got a decent deal thru school, about $230 total for the both of us - still alot especially when you've got the deductible to cover first

Kaiser has gotten expensive lately...my daughter has that. I on the other hand, my ex dropped me from his insurance the minute he and I left court last year. I don't have insurance, sad to say. I guess I should sign up for Medi-cal. I might need it someday.

Its manitory to that I keep it as I have children.
There is also child support. 600.00 a month
There was alimony for 4 years that I USE to pay 1000.00 a month.
That finally ended..(alimony) the mooch finally had to get a job

My other payments are-

WTF?


Well, the sucky part of my new job is, I don't get benefits, but my mom has a deal for me through her work where my hospitalization is covered, but shittily, nothing else. So, knock on wood that I'm healthy for a long time...

Khanada what kind of plan are you using?

Diamond, if you want to go over monthly expenses compared to job income, I have like $100 of free spending money to myself a month after all this crap gets paid. And that doesnt include food and gas for that friggin gas guzzling beast of a car I have. Granted I dont have child support payments and kids but I'm sure you make a lot more money than me hustling people into buying cars.

* free room and board at my parents house is starting to look good *

Sicy-

I understand winding up w zero after all the bills are paid
Some months I had to live on credit cards to makes ends meet, to pay my lovely ex spouse her alimony.

And remember my salary is NOT guaranteed
If I see no cars, I make no money. Iam straight commission..

Do not move back home w your Ma, it will throw off your mojo

good bye

diamond

egads! 178 a month! It's times like these I'm glad I live in the UK and we have the National Health Service.....

and Sicy - don't move home with your mum I just had to do that cos I went travelling round the world and when I came back I had no job and no money. still haven't. Its nice that it's cheap but I miss my own place..... Moving home was a bit of a shock to the system after 5 years of my own place

How many times is Kaiser going to raise their rates? Because my stepson is a bartender/musician, he has no medical insurance. I don't want him to be without so I pay his Kaiser premiums...which started at $89, went to $132 and now $160...for one person. His copay started at $5 and now its $25.

I'm too nice...he's gonna have to get a real job.

Other than that, I'm very lucky...my husband's police retirement pays our Kaiser premiums in full for the 2 of us and my kids...somewhere around $600 per month.
