Insurance is just not affordable

Posted11/12/2016 1:00 AM

I also have struggled constantly with keeping up on my insurance premiums. I agree with your reader, John Bills Sr. I think we should get together and gather all of the people having the same problem. Really!

My current BC/BS policy is 465 per month on $6,750 deductible with a 20 percent co-pay on most medical procedures. I still have not met my deductible this year. I just received my notice from BC/BS that my new years policy will be $796.33 per month with a $6,800 deductible.

I am receiving nothing from BC/BS for almost $800 per month. This is simply unacceptable.

I am self-employed in the child-care business, I have pre-existing conditions. I simply can no longer afford health insurance. Now what?

We must take action
