Fun and Not Fun

August 31st, 2010 · 7 Comments

We had a fun mini vacation!  The problem is, we came home to the monthly bill for our health insurance.  It has been raised to $2,000 per month, $24,000 per year!  It makes me sick just looking at those numbers.  This comes at a time when my husband has had very little work for the past year and a half.  I don’t have time to post any photos of vacation today because I’ll be researching other insurance alternatives.  Wish me luck.

    Oh, sweetie, how stressful. I’ll be sending you happy, stress-free, cheap (but reliable!) insurance thoughts today…

    Yikes! I’m so sorry to hear that. Sending you positive vibes today!

    That is a huge hike in price… ouch! Do hope you will find another, more reasonable option, Gayle. Glad you had the vacation… hope sifting through the memories will ease the stress. :o) ((HUGS))

    Gayle, please look into a state supplemented insurance. A lot of friends who also happen to be self-employed have it and it’s cheaper than purchasing straight from the insurance company. Sorry about that! What a pain.

    Oh, man. $2,000?!? That’s ridiculous! I hope you’re able to find something more reasonable.
