It's the Husband's ANNUAL ENROLLMENT for Health Benefits at his work. We cancelled my medical coverage in 2011 for the 2012 calendar year. It had gone up to $250 a month, and with his low paying job at that time, we could not afford that - unless we sold the house. As a military retiree spouse, I am entitled to TriCare for free, although it is Catastrophic coverage. It's better than nothing and I tend to be a more "treat myself" with home remedies and always lean toward alternative ways.
However I am a senior now. (granted, a young, vibrant sexy senior) The new benefits for 2013 will now cost us for just me - $196 a week! That's almost $800 a month!!!! I can't afford that!!! I really feel for families. It would be $378 a week. $1512 a month!!
It says in BOLD PRINT - That we cannot cancel the insurance for financial hardship.
We are screwed.
