It would depend on the type. We paid close to 700 for our PPO before (through husbands work) for the whole family. Now I think we pay closer to 400 for an HMO through a different job he has. It really depends on the coverage. Some of the cheaper stuff sucks and you end up paying a ton out of pocket anyways,.

You have to just weigh the benefits and know what it covers. Most of the cheaper ones have high deductibles and cover less. So you have to compare what the plans cover and whatnot. If you go to the doctor a lot you probably aren't going to want a high deductible or high out of pocket maximum.
