GOOD GOLLY! EVEN THE MSA FAMILY RATE IS MORE THAN MY MORTGAGE!
They really think they are giving me a deal? I looked at my paystub. The company has deducted a "mere" ~$4000 for health insurance this year (total). I'm going to continue to "shop" but, dang. I mean dang. It looks like it would actually be cheaper to pay out of pocket. Even if pregnancy is covered and is not treated as a preexisting condition. But if I could afford that kind of money, I would just save it each month and pay the doctors in cash.
This is stupid-expensive insurance.
