    Yeah, the 80/20 is in network. I am not sure what out of network is without looking back at the paperwork. It also has a dental and vision plan, for what its worth.

    And when I buy a new car, I don't really care about the new car smell or any of that. I care about the warranty and service agreement I am getting with it. Other than my truck, I trade my car in about every 4 years. Once I traded it in earlier because the mileage warranty was coming really close to being exceeded.

    I've kept my truck for 9 years and I drive it the most. I'm just having a hard time letting it go.

    Re: How much do you pay for Health Insurance?

    I'm 26 and I pay $16.03 a week for my 2 sons and myself.
    It's one of my company plans.

    I believe I have a 70/30 plan, with a $30 co pay for primary care and a $55 co pay for specialists.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I'm 20 and live in Texas. I pay $150 a month for health insurance through Starbucks. Currently, we use Aetna as our health care provider, but we'll be changing to Premera Blue Cross soon.

    Here are a few facts that will make it easier to understand the crisis:

    Nearly $7,000 is spent per person per year on HC in the US.

    Drug prices average 50% more in the US.

    HC has went up 90% in the last eight years, that is more than doubling every ten years.

    Doctors spent an average of $68,274 per year interacting with health plans.

    You didn't like what you saw, so you felt the need to start an off-topic rant about how all healthcare in the US is ****ed? How about you just stick to the topic?

    My monthly premium is slightly over $100. But I'm in my 20s and perfectly healthy...and I have a ****ty individual plan that I am quite certain would try to screw me over should I ever file any major claims.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.
