Rising costs of individual health care plans

This is an OLD article — my apologies for not blogging about it sooner. It's been on my list since February, but I just kept forgetting.

For most diabetics, this won't even apply, since health insurance companies legally can and will decline us for individual health care plans — but in February the media reported vast increases in the cost of individual health care plans.

Look at the numbers in this article — some of those increases are almost criminal! Blue Cross of Michigan was trying to increase their rates by more than half, for heaven's sake! Does no one see how terrible it is that our country allows health insurance companies to put such a ridiculous price on its citizens' health?
