We got our enrollment forms this week as well. Going up from $80/month for DW and myself to $213/month. $500 deductible, $30 co-pay at Dr office.

I talked with a retiree friend from the same company yesterday and he is livid about the huge increase, but I assured him that we have been incredibly fortunate this last 4 years with what we have been paying and that even the new rates are incredibly good. Those that are still working at the company also have an FSA available so they can pay their premiums etc. with pre-tax money.

Retired in Jan, 2010 at 55, moved to England in May 2016
Now it's adventure before dementia
