POZ:"My wife and I pay $25,000 per year for health insurance and deductibles. Tell me again how Canada is more expensive."
I pay $3600/yr for $2000 deductible Blue Cross of TX policy...and average about $4500 a year in expenses including the insurance.
I don't pay big VAT taxes or sales taxes on everything I buy......
I don't pay a 7.5% fee on my income to fund the gov't plan that pays only 70% of the medical costs anyway. ANd you would need private insurance.
You do realize that both you and your wife would each pay the 7.5% of income fee...plus the VAT and high taxes.....and only get 70% back from the gov't? and have to buy private insurance to 'fill the gap' of the other 30%?
Maybe you need to move to a cheaper state?
