Suzy - That's a fairly standard thing. As a business owner, I'm used to seeing my employee's premiums increase by 20%-30% per year. We sign 12 month contracts so our rates don't increase until our contract expires. This year we only saw negligible increases in premiums for a change -only around 4%! We were quite ecstatic. By the way, even with a corporate plan, we still pay $1k/month for family coverage (HMO - $20/visit co-pay, $5/$12/$45 prescription (with unlimited coverage per year), $250 in-patient co-pay, vision coverage, dental ($2k/year I believe) and a bunch of other stuff). Individuals are around $350/month I believe. I can't remember how much double coverage is. Health insurance is expensive! We're also trying to figure out our coverage options for when we start our cruise (with our kids).
