Certainly didn't settle down for me this year. My portion of what I pay rose by close to 20%, AND the deductible rose from $2500 to $3000, AND the OOP maximum rose from $4000 to $6000.

Thank you, may I please have another?

I just never have experienced the rate shocks in MO, like I read here. I had my daughter on an individual BC/BS plan and it went up from $95 to $170 over an 11 year period that ended last year. I got her on my ex wife's new husbands policy now thats free so you cant beat that. But still, $95 to $170 really wasnt bad for a 1000 deductible plan. Like I said, mine is unchanged for the almost 2 years Ive had mine now. Maybe we never go to the doctor and just die quickly here in MO.
