      That's probably a large percentage of your problem right there.

      Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!

          where the first year's rate is much much better than the rate for renewal. I saw this multiple times, multiple companies, at a scale larger than the normal predatory annual increases.

          For a couple of years, we were able to change plans every year and get some relief that way, but where we live is now only covered by two insurance companies.
