I was paying over $800 a month for healthcare in 2016, Buy the time I was old enough for Medicare it was a little under $1400 a month with a $6000 deductibleI don't keep up with private health insurance because I use the VA & tricare. But who is paying over $800 a month for health insurance? > $10,000 annual!!!! That's almost a mortgage payment. It is way more than my first mortgage monthly payments. No wonder young people aren't paying off their student loans. After paying for health insurance and other monthly bills, there isn't much money left over.
