    You're clearly disabled yet not collecting a check? That's not very smart.

    Nope. Because it's so obvious.

    No big changes to the plans and small increase in price. My coverage for the same plan goes up about $150 a year so an increase of $6.25 per biweekly pay period. I am happy with that.

    My wife's monthly premium (self insured) goes up 34% next year to over $800. I've not heard yet what my increase will be.

    Just checked my rates and it looks like I will be paying $4 less per month, that is a first.

    Yeah, I need to investigate my wife's plan. Her current plan (POS) is not being offered next year. The letter says the premium for the new plan they recommend (HMO) will be $812/mo. The problem is their website says the premium for the new plan is only $619/mo. Something's fishy.

    I received my letter from CareFirst yesterday. The monthly premium for my plan is is increasing 45.1% to $675.78.

    So if I do not go shopping for cheaper insurance, my combined monthly premium will be $1488/mo.

    Ouch.

    I have a company sponsored retiree plan thru BC/BS. Last year they offered a new option, an "economy" plan. Standard was about $300/m (single, not married, no kids), the economy plan was $90/m. I went over the two plans line by line, and the only difference I could find was an increase in the deductible by $50. This was no-brainer. Just got the renewal for this year, and it was the same plans, options and costs as last year, so again I renewed for $90/m.

    Coverage has been great, covered drugs pretty good, no co-pay.... for the life of me I can't figure out how they can offer it and why any retiree would choose the more expensive plan for the very same coverage.

    I hope you guys can find a better option. That's a big chunk of money.
