Aschoenb...Whe we set out we found the same high costs but did not find that the kids added that much more to the total premium. There really is no good, low cost private solution so we decided to take a policy with a very high deductible ($5K) so as just to protect us from any truly crippling bills. That helped quite a bit but even now for the 2 of us it is running over $6k/year with the high deductible. Our policy is with BC/BS. Can't wait till we can get on medicare!!
