    Carla,
    I have been having to pay $600.00 a month for my son and myself since Nov of last year!! I cant believe they can do this to us :( Now I have to worry that in Feb my benefits run out so we will have NO ins???? What is this all about?

    I wish I knew what to do next...
    Good luck to you and all the rest of us in this posituon.

    Ours is over $800 a month for the two of us. It goes up Jan. 1. I know alot of states have insurance programs for those whom can't afford regular insurance rates. In Minnesota, if you get assistance, they base your rates on your income.

    I'm covered right now on a group cobra policy for $288.mo purely healthcare and a ppo. I have to use my former employer;s hospital ( where I worked). I had my insurance CANCELLED 5 times by my former employer while on medical leave, I guess because noone would own up to the problem.... either its the insurance company or the intermediate benefits company or the former employer, a hospital. I got a letter today saying that the intermediate company told the hospital that I wasn't insured on 9/17/01 LOL and they are just telling me now... over a yr later.... interesting esp in light of the fact that the hospital OWNS* the insurance company....can they screw us any worse??????????????

    My husband and I have been there and done that. We were paying $1800.00 a month. My husband has had a couple of heart attacks and nobody wants to cover you. He was in business for himself so we had to pay. Thank God he has found a job with excellent insurance. First time in our lives. He hates his job, but we have insurance. All the politicians have great insurance so they don't want to reform healthcare. I would vote for snoopy if we could get some kind of healthcare reform.
    Just wanted to put my 2 cents in. I feel sooo bad for you guys, I completely understand. Lets' see do we eat or do we have health insurance. DA
    Good Luck I feel for you.
