My medical insurance premium dropped 23% just from moving here from south Florida. Same company, same policy. I would think some of that is the higher use of medical facilities in south Florida but I also suspect some of that has to do with lower costs here, though I haven't yet made use of medical resources yet.

As an aside, my policy did go up 19% year over year here, though I'm certain it would have done the same hadn't I relocated. At this rate of increase, in four years my medical insurance will cost more than a mortgage would cost to buy my new home in Tampa. I'm going to have to get really really sick to make this worthwhile.
