How do we do it? We pay.... a lot. We have no special retirement "Sweert deals" from any employer, so we had to go out and just buy an individual policy. We have Blue Cross, with a $3,000 deductible on each of us.

When we started the policy, at age 60, it was $325/month; now, it's up to $685/month, 4 years later.

Scary, but what are the choices? ONE serious hospital event could wipe us out otherwise!
