Considering a future relocation. Have researched many other things but can;t seem to find how much anyone is paying for health insurance. Especially if anyone is an RN that would be helpful. Looking for how much is taken out of your paycheck for your health insurance coverage esp. a family plan not just a single person. Your general location would be great too. I am a PA resident and currently my husbands employer provides free health insurance coverage for the family but offers no dental or vision. I pay for those from my employer at about $40 a month if I paid for health insurance it would cost me another $150 a month. I am employed by a hospital. Any info is appreciated.

I am an RN and work for HCR Manor Care in Columbus, OH, although I am transferring with the company to Tampa, FL in a couple of weeks. I pay $220 bi/weekly for health insurance for a family plan(wife and 2 kids). That does not include dental/vision which I believe is another $50/month, so total, almost $500/month. I've heard that this is very high and comparing it to your numbers, it is very high !...Adding taxes, 401k, and child support, it's no wonder why I have to have a second PRN job!

Nothing, it's too expensive and they'd go through my medical history and find a way to either jack my rate or deny coverage based on a case of the flu I had back in 9th grade.

I pay $1106.00 every two months. My wife $450.00 a month. We are self employed and I buy my own insurance. We had to drop out small group plan when it got to almost $2000.00 a month.

If you work as a public teacher in Lee county you would pay 27,792 per year for the high family plan and 13,668 per year for the low plan. LINK: Welcome to The School District of Lee County So much for teachers having lavish benefits eh? what a joke that school districts hand out chips and medicaid info to teacher hires with master's degrees! the message florida sends to teachers: Come to our cities, educate and care for our children, even though you won't be able to take care of your children. sickening and it was just made worse. Are you people aware that teachers have to pay that much for insurance?

Yeah $230 a month is great unless you make $10 an hour which full time nets you $1200-1300 per month after witholding. By the time you paid your taxes and ensured your health, you have about $1000 left to cover rent, transportation, utilities, groceries, phone, and copays that arn't covered. Again, great deal.

It's not so much the location as the employer. I had fully paid until 2009, including dental and vision, but the higher costs caused them to start taking out 10%. I currently pay $140/month for my wife and I. My daughter works part-time and gets none from her work, so she pays about $360/month for
everything, and has higher deductibles and lower maximums than we do.
