I retired and my wife is not of medicare age yet. She did the research and found a Golden Rule plan that costs $1200 a month and we are paying that for a few more yrs. $1200 a month is a lot better than a million dollar hospital bill. There are some others out there that are more cost effective like medishare if you meet the criteria. It's a temporary situation unless your wife is a LOT younger than you ;) ...doc

Dec, there are other companies out there such as Samaritan Ministries, Christian Heath Services, Liberty HealthShare and US Healthshare. CHS is the oldest company with Medishare and Samaritan Ministries not far behind. It might be worth looking into those companies because they are much less than the $1200/monthly you now pay for your wife.

None of them are regular insurance but people pool their money and expenses are paid. I had CHS, my daughter-in-law had Medishare before switching to CHS and my son has Samaritan.
