Health insurance premiums for early retired (Florida)

Good morning everyone!
My husband and I maybe retiring within 5 years to Florida. We are very concerned about paying health insurance premiums for the two of us and possibly one college-aged child. Does anyone here pay for their own insurance? How bad is the expense? I am trying to plan accordingly.

Thanks!!!

+1 See the thread below or type "health insurance" in the search box at the top of the page.

Poll of What is Your Health Insurance Choice for 2016

However, in the future, please spend at least one minute trying to find the information yourself before posting a question.

Also, check out healthsherpa.com for the area in Florida that you intend to settle in.

Without specifics that's a difficult question to answer. Age, location (zip code) and subsidy eligibility have a big impact on your cost.

I would suggest you visit healthsherpa or healthcare.gov and look at the policies in the zip code where you intend to live.
