Sorry to post the subject so loudly...but I just received my renewal rates and there up another 25% this year [Linked Image]

I use United Health Care. My single premium rate is $360 month, up from $280 last year. My family rate is $960 mth, up from $750 mth. This is the least expensive plan with the highest co-pays and deductables also [Linked Image]

I'm sure you have discussed this before, but I wanted some current input.

Any tips or suggestions would be helpful.

Thanx

I'm up from $720.00 to $800.00
Mid-level plan, higher deductible & co-pays
I guess I shouldn't complain.

Running about the same as Redsy, we just keep passing it on, and bumped up our rates.

You guys should live in Maine. One of the highest health insurances rates in the country with no competition at all. See if there is any association you can join that has a insurance benefits available. I joined the Maine Oil Dealers which offers insurance to its members, they in turn get a group rate. I pay 341 a month for just me(I,m 48). My wife gets it thru her work.

$1250 per month! [Linked Image]

Makes our "free" National Health Service seem almost attractive. [Linked Image]
