Health Insurance 2013

October open enrollment time is upon us....and it looks like next year is going to be interesting.... where staying with Plan C is the way to go still though. The deductible goes up to $2500 from $1500. Hopefully Xyrem will come first and take care of it in one fell swoop. After that...the insurance pays 100% of everything for the rest of the year. And, the monthly premium is like $2.04....

One of the joys of being single, I suppose.

Kind of easier than the $1500 deductible and then some co-insurance amount until another $1500. To where they've been paying 100% since mid-May. Also the employer contribution to the HSA is done as a lump sum at the start of the year. So I should
have no problem meeting the whole deductible at once, unlike last year.
