I haven't seen that site before. Great tip! Thanks.

I had that discussion with DW last night. I am on a 3 week vacation right now and she just started a 10 day stretch. This was the perfect opportunity for me to pump the "dream." It was a very productive conversation and we came to YOUR conclusion.

OK, well I'll just take credit for that.....I think it's probably the right call for you.

[QUOTE

In my state, unsubsidized premiums for a couple for a bronze plan are $12k a year.... $17k for a family. We're pretty healthy so add $1-2k to that for deductibles, co-pays, things not covered, etc.[/QUOTE]

In California, a Blue Shield bronze plan for us in our 50s is $24k per year and for a family of four is $36k. Then you have to add on the $12k+ deductible if something goes bad during the year.

We switched to Christian Healthcare Ministries 18 months ago and so far so good. $300 per month and we self insure the small stuff.

I have spent countless hours daydreaming about FIRE. DW is just beginning to understand how life changing FIRE will be for our family.
