I got my bill from my health insurance company... they've raised my premium AGAIN... but this time it's an increase of $90.00 PER MONTH! So that means if I keep it, I'm now paying over $3200 per year on a policy that doesn't cover anything I need.... it has a $5000 deductible, and then covers 80% in coinsurance, but doesn't cover check ups (which cost me another $400 every year). Since I got it, I spent this last month researching other options and only found ONE company that was actually $100 less and does cover check ups (which I've decided to buy). But if this one goes up, I won't be able to afford insurance anymore.
I just don't understand why the congress is balking so much on a single payor program when a lot of us paying the insurance companies are soon going to be without any other choice.
