  •  Oregon Regence Blue Cross (5+ / 0-)

    For the past six years with a two person family plan. Our premiums have risen every year and are now $1150 per month for a 61 and 62 year old non-smokers. Our deductible is fairly low, $1200 each but we've rarely reached it. Like the poster above, we cant find a comparable plan on CoverOregon for less money and we earn too much to qualify for a subsidy. Since CoverOregon is not really functional yet, we will probably go to an insurance salesperson and see if we can do any better. We did get a cheerful letter from Regence saying "We Got You Covered!" and that they will move us into a new plan if we do nothing. The new premiums will be substantially higher than our current horrible $1150 per month. I realize we now have no lifetime caps or pre-existing condition problems but without Medicare for all, we are still victims of the insurance industry, especially because we are so close to Medicare eligibility and are high earners.

    Try Organic food, or as your grandparents called it, food.
