I didn't pay health insurance for a long time after I "retired" in 2001, but that changed, I forgot when but it wasn't too awful bad, $200+ per month, compared to ACA now at $832 per month, that was a deal.

I have a few yrs. until Medicare and I dare say, it will cost me dearly.

I'm self insured for Long Term Health Care.....managed my money all these yrs. and it's too late now to be buying nor would it be wise, plus if I did have, there would be escalating premiums with that too.

Everything is paid for and it seems taxes, healthcare, home/yard stuff and food are major costs.
I live pretty simply and not a jet setter. :)
