It's that time of year again where I have to choose a health plan for my family. $1700/month for health insurance premiums for a family of four - that's the amount I have to pay out of pocket.

When you work for a large corporation, the health insurance premiums are 2 to 3 times lower than this. When you work for yourself or for a small company, like I have the past decade and a half, it's crazy high.

Our family is healthy and we just about never go to the doctor (I don't even have a primary). WE ARE PAYING THE COST FOR OTHER PEOPLE TO GO TO THE DOCTOR.

Since I've been with my husband, we've paid A QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLARS in health insurance premiums for something we never use because we take health into our own hands. The only reason I keep doing this is because we have two young kids, and there's always that "what if"...

The insurance industry is possibly the root of all evil.

Has anyone tried the Christian Healthcare Ministries (CHM) plan? I keep hearing the commercial on the radio! I pay almost $500 a month for just me (Blue Cross of Texas). Never sick, but have had to have surgery some random surgeries in the last 20-30 years (ankle repair from athletics, emergency hysterectomy etc), so I do always want some sort of insurance (especially for hospital). Interested to know if anyone has Tried CHM? 🤷‍♀️

May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.

We’ve been CHM members since 2012 and would recommend them to anyone looking for a health sharing account.

It's crazy how warped everything is. Literally every single deck is stacked against us. This realization more than anything broke me. What a pointless waste of time and effort. Unfair. Oppressive. Systemic. A circularity of reinforcements (mostly negative) to prop up the worst culprits. Healthcare, banks & government. In ignorance we helped build our own cage... Irony really is a mf.

Medbeds, QFS and extremely limited gov would immediately fix so much. Complicated world, lots of problems. People need a win.

We are retired, my husband is on Medicare, our daughter is in college. Our premiums for health insurance is close to $2000 a month. It's outrageous.

They’re absolutely evil. My 70 year old mother is extremely healthy, nothing wrong with her and she takes no medications. The health insurance through my Dad’s work refuse to cover her because they can’t believe she’s actually that healthy - even though all the tests they had run were through their doctors! If they can’t make money off you being sick, they don’t want to insure you. backwards.

In response Mandy Brake to her Publication

3 of us and we pay the same. All healthy. We haven’t been to doc in 3 years. I quit the dentist, fluoride, etc and so much healthier. Quit all allergy meds and they all went away after decades.
When Obummer (small biz crusher) was in office we were paying $2k for insurance that was suddenly useless. $1,200 well check invoice came in the mail for a 4yr old’s check up. Another wake-up moment.

Forgive, but never forget. To bad its all gonna crash on them. ❤️

I've been doing a lot of research on insurance as well and I'm really tired of paying $8k a year for the pleasure of carrying around a plastic card just in case something bad happens. I have decided to put the amount we've been paying "them" into my own private account and I have checked with my 2 doctors on cash pricing. They were so willing to work on a cash basis because they can't stand working with the insurance companies either. It will be a savings of about $6,500 a year for us. I'm going to work with a insurance broker and get another policy for emergencies (emergency health insurance, catastrophic if your under 30 years old) only if it works out to be cheaper. Otherwise, whatever happens happens.

In response Mandy Brake to her Publication

I had a wonderful insurance company. Then at 65 they FORCED me to take medicare. Now I still have my wonderful insurance company but they are my secondary (which means they pay nothing). Medicare pays for some (?) when I go to the doctor once a year for my thyroid blood work, it cost around $400. Now my two great insurance company's don't pay anything cause I have not reached my deductible (which is low). AND if my income goes up -my cost for medicare insurance goes up - then I have to pay the monthly amount plus $$ more. Take every dime when they can....PLUS when you are on medicare they want to run every test on you they can get away with to create a problem * a pacemaker cost $76,000 & medicare pays all of it....the doctors know what they are doing. I say NO to any & all test..when I get sick I will let them know.

I feel your pain.
My husbad recently retired after 37 years from a large corporation. We had the same insurance for the last 15 years. The "new" insurance is the same company. A year after he retired the insurance dropped me. The letter said I need to apply for Medicaid, because I gave an incurable disease. (MS)
My humble opinion is, the government mandated health insurance is to control our health or lack there of. Push as many as you can to the government subsidized plan, then force the physicians to accept said plan, then change allowable coverage under the guise of cost. This will certainly lower the population. Mission accomplished!!

Have often thought this ... they coin it in! It's a very unfair system.

In response Mandy Brake to her Publication

Somebody I know racked up $100k+ in hospital/medical bills during covid 2021 and had no health insurance because of the scamdemic layoffs. Thanks to the scamdemic, they discounted the bill and dropped it to $15k. HA! The person is broke; barely hanging on. Person ended up mailing $20 a month. A year goes by and now they are like, "$4k final balance". However, it must be done in one payment.
The healthcare industry is a front for fraud. Hospitals, doctors, and insurance companies: it's all a coordinated scam on the people.

imagine if you would have saved that money, it would have covered pretty much anything health related that would come up i would think! But i get it, your damned if you do and damned if u don't! We have gone without insurance aside from our daughter who is on medicaid, because neither one of us have an option through work and we can't afford anything else. I worry that she may loose it with all of the mandates they are still trying to push, because she will not have anything forced upon her!

In response Mandy Brake to her Publication

Yup. And then they don't even cover anything. We have to spend over 30k out of pocket before they pay 100% and we pay $1300 for family of four as well. And the ratio of what we pay until they pay is absolutely unattainable. They cover $25 maybe of a $500 bill? I was sobbing paying medical bills the other day. Kept telling myself....they make you sick and then they make you pay for it. This level of angst that I feel from the system will literally break me.

I think, therefore, I am free. I am a Prayer Warrior, Child of God, and a Patriot.... #Trump4EVA, #MAGA, #MEGA, #KAG, #KAGA

I am sorry you even have to pay for that piece of mind. It is for sure time to put health back into healthcare.

Chose natural health vs medical insurance. Yes, it is out of pocket, but so much less expensive, in the long run.

I could be wrong but I think I remember from past posts you are in CA, where you get forced to insure or pay a huge price at tax time?

What about doing a Christian co-share like Liberty or Medishare?

I did that for years until I had opp to use company plan. I had great luck with Liberty because like you, I don't go to docs. Both are exempt from the penalty at tax time.

What about creating your own HSA? (health savings account)
The $$ you're putting toward an insurer could be a better benefit for you (and family) than the waste of an insurance comp. I'm with a large corp and am forced into the plan. Personally? I'd choose a diff route since I'm in the same boat as you. Good luck!

In response Joyce Williams to her Publication

It sounds like an HSA can only be used for qualified medical expenses, and you also have to still enroll in and pay for a high deductible health plan of some sort.

Qualifying for an HSA Contribution
To be an eligible individual and qualify for an HSA contribution, you must meet the following requirements.
- You are covered under a high deductible health plan (HDHP)
- You have no other health coverage except what is permitted under Other health coverage.
- You aren’t enrolled in Medicare.

Of course some things that are excluded are nutritional supplements and weight-loss program because they can't have us being too healthy.🙄

Totally agree!! we pay $500 more than that and then still have huge deductibles if you use it. 1-2 providers in our state too so a total monopoly.
