This was the first year in several years my health insurance didn't go up, and our deductible didn't increase, either.

I have no complaints. I'm not thrilled with what I pay in health insurance, but I had some medical issues this year and am profoundly grateful that I had health insurance to pay for my 8 days in the hospital and subsequent outpatient care, and the drugs I have to take every day.

I cannot imagine what I would have done without health insurance, along with the FMLA that protected my job while I was out. Run up a giant debt, I guess, and then declared bankruptcy because I couldn't pay. Or worse, not obtained treatment and either died or ended up with a chronic problem that would have cost even more over time to treat.

I vowed that after this year, I will not complain about my health insurance again.
