Here is the question: What price range per month or year are people paying for health insurance single coverage in the age range of 60 to 65. I am going to move to Las Vegas (retired) and I am trying to put together a monthly budget or what I need per year to live there. Please do not give me the stories about how crappy medical care is and etc every state has those stories. I need information on health insurance plan and a prescription plan included or seperate. Thanks for your in put when you give it.

I suggest that you search on Google or call any health insurance carrier such as blue cross/blue shield. There is no local health insurance specificaly targeted to Las Vegas.

But rates do differ depending on your State of residence. When I was still in NY and paying for individual health insurance I paid just over $1,000. per month for Empire's HMO with prescription coverage; I know the cost would have been different in NV, but don't know what. If you go on-line and google health insurance you'll come up with some sites that will let you enter pertinant data and they will return pricing options - you may get some phone calls/emails, but they are easy to get rid of if you're not interested and they don't follow up - I found it time well spent for the information I received.
Good Luck,
Pam

Are you on Medicare yet? If so you just need a prescription supplemental don't you? The State of Nevada just screwed us out of our promised retirement plans and turned our coverage over to a private company. The we had to choose to buy plan that seemed right for us, so I ended up with Blue Cross-Blue Shield. My cost went up a little bit, but my out of pocket for copay and scripts will be zero. I have no idea what it would cost an individual, but BC-BS is supposed to be pretty good. Sorry I can't give you more info, but I think everyone's is going to be different based on health and age anyway. Mine will be $192.60 a month, and the state pays $10 per month for each year served, which is either 13 or 14.
