So my I got a letter in the mail today informing me that my health insurance rates will be going up again. In the past few years (roughly since I've turned 40) my rate has gone from $250 to double that as it's now going to be $508 a month. Up until recently I have been keeping up with the payment (via credit card) as I know my health hasn't been the best in the past few years with high cholesterol, high blood pressure and now being pre-diabetic. But I just can't do it anymore. I'm in debt up to my eye balls because of health insurance but the time has come to drop it. I'm going to try for one of these Obama care health plans and see what comes of it. If nothing comes of it then I'll go without until I can find a steady job and afford insurance again... wish me luck.
