<<We paid $135 to be covered under PacificCare with the company for the years age 60 to 65 for my husband. That amount covered both of us. We could have taken Blue Cross/Blue Shield for $165 a month if you want to compare apples to apples.

Why such a cheap deal? Was this subsidized by a previous employer, perhaps?


Personally, I pay $815/month for my individual health insurance coverage ---that's for one person at age 58.
