Lol right? At least I know I was stupid and am willing to admit it :-D that's rare these days.

Yeah, our yearly deductible of 3000 dollars is just individual for the family I think it's 8000 dollars.... * inserting my eye roll here because I'm on my damn phone*, lol...

Oh of course, their prices are great!! However they denied me because I have bipolar disorder and apparently that's a pre existing condition on their list. They also denied my oldest daughter because she has Down syndrome and it's a pre existing condition!! Well no shit Sherlock.... :-/

Yes, it has gone up dramatically. My DED used top be $500 per person. Now, it's like $1500 per person.

My sister's psychiatrist didn't officially diagnose her bipolar for this very reason. Yikes.

I didn't read all 29 pages but I think all of this is going to be moot in a year or so with healthcare reform. Almost everyone will have some sort of government subsidized healthcare from the understanding that I am getting. I'm helping my county set up the systems, there's going to be a LOT of changes.

You can thank Obamacare for that.

I'm curious as how people feel with this situation?



My Family is Native American So my daughter and I get free health care (SO has to pay for his) We wouldn't be able to afford private insurance for DD and I because it would be around $200/bi weekly through SO's work. However since we're are Native everything is covered.



Is it (in your opinion) wrong for us to be TTC?

Also what about this scenario?



I had a friend that couldn't afford regular insurance but CA offered a low cost insurance (I think it's called healthy families and cost around 20/month)
I mean it's nowhere near what others pay for their insurance but she is paying something... is it wrong if she decided to TTC? (IYO)

Yep, valid because the way healthcare is run in your country is freakin' ridiculous.

Since I think insurance should be free, I don't think its a big deal. Food stamps and other help, Yeah maybee, But I personally don't like to judge someone else. Its not my place.
