Health Insurance

Thursday, June 11, 2009

I guess that I don't find it hard to believe that the cost of Health Insurance is rising at phenomanal rates. Just in the past 2 years they have raised my premiums about 4 times. I just got yet another increase and I am not even 49 yet. Oh, we won't raise your rate until you turn 49 ...Oh sure...Always sighting that it is due to upgrades in technical things at hospitals and so on. I only use my insurance once a year , and maybe 1 other time if I happen to get sick.. I am irritated and when calling my Insurance Carrier Blue Shield to search for the kind of plan that I have now for the same amount of money. No such thing. I have something now that is at least affordable but now they have raised it another $73.00...I only work 2-3 days a week if I am lucky and my husband is on a very limited income. What do they expect us to do. I have been on the band and writing letters to whomever I can. I would like to see some change to the health care industry. I think we should do away with the private insurance people , what to replace them with is another question. I am just frustrated with the government and the fact that they are probably getting paid by the insurance companies to vote against whatever legislature they try to pass. Does anyone have any ideas of what else that we can do?? Just putting the question out there ........

    There are so many people in the same position that you're in. The premiums are unbelievable and the execs of these companies still have million $ salaries. Write to your Senator and congressman and tell them your story. I am supporting the president's public option which will make private companies reduce their premiums to compete for your business. I can't wait. I have a chronic illness and they (insurance co.) wrote me off years ago!

    Hang in there and make some NOISE!!
