  •  Auto insurance and home insurance does vary (0+ / 0-)

    according to where one lives. For instance, we got a discount on renters insurance when we moved to a townhouse that is closer to a fire hydrant than where we lived before and a place that is half brick vs a place that was not.

    Auto insurance premiums vary according to where one lives as we also found out when moving from a small city to a small college town.  They said it is rated according to the number of auto thefts, vandalism, and accidents in a particular county and so on.

    So there are other insurances that charge varying and higher premiums for some of those things you describe like where one lives and in what structure one resides and so on.

    So to me, health insurance is not much different than my auto insurance which charged me more when I lived in a small city than in a small town and charged me more for home insurance because of how close I lived to a fire hydrant and what my building was made of.
