Right now we're paying $90 a week for the 4 of us, including dental. DH got a letter with his pay stub last week stating it will be going up another $50.00 a week!!
Is that right around what you guys are paying? When DH first started at this company 2 years ago- we were paying I think $30.00 a week, then they hiked it up to the $90.00. And his job before that, we were paying about $28.00 a month!!! So this is a real sticker shock.
From my calculations from what we pay and what dh's company chips in, this insurance is getting paid a little over $1400. a month for premiums. I feel so bad for senior citizens and families who's employers do not offer insurance and probably do not make $1400 a month, so privsate insurance is out of the question.
Wow I guess I'm the most protected for the cheapest in the Village.We pay $35 every 2 weeks. That covers preventative dental on the kids to 19 and our Dr. co pay is $15 and meds are $20 and $5 generic. Emergency room and surgery is $100 I think.
