I cannot beelvie health insurance premiums continue to rise as they have been. We have individual (i.e. family) coverage, and our rates have increased over 25% in each of the last 3 years. And I am not counting a change in our age group. That will be coming next year as I turn 40. This rate of cost increases cannot continue. What's going to happen to people who make less than we do? (And are typically younger, and who typically make less money.) They will start to drop off of the lists of those who have insurance. And the cycle will continue. Does the federal health care reform change any of this? For us it's only a matter of time before I either have to drop off the roles of the insured, or change my lifestyle completely by selling my house, or worse. Maybe we'll have to move to Europe, where coverage is mandatory.
