Health Care

This issue has been on my mind of late. Just got through renewing my health care benefits at work. Happens every June. One can select what health care provider one would prefer (Kaiser, Etna, Blue Cross etc..) and adjust other benefits like dental, life insurance, vision care.

So with my new selections for my family, my cost have increased over $2,000 more per year. The added cost is my choice however the rise in cost is still a concern. The fact the I have the ability to choice the structure of my benefits makes these increases a little more bearable, but it's still a painful deduction from my check every two weeks.

The new proposed changes of Obama, doesn't make me feel any better, in fact it makes me feel worse. Though the price of my benefits has increase that's my own choice. From what I've read so far on this issue not only would my choices disappear but my medical coverage would be limited.

I will be posting a number of articles on the subject. Make your own mind up...
