    Was wondering if you owner operators had found affordable health insurance, for yourself and family?

    I’m curious also.. I’ve shopped a lot of the private plans and having a hard time forking up $1300 $1500 a month for health insurance.. it’s a racket..

    Not a issue in my neck of the woods but are there health insurance brokers who could recommend the best bang for your buck?

    That’s ridiculous.. between different “insurance plans” and taxes I’m pretty sure I’m getting the short end of this stick..

    Just got new plan 2 weeks ago. It’s getting out of control.

    Fyi...
    If you happen to be a Believer in God..
    there is an option to check out.

    Medi-Share it's a faith based plan where members "share" medical costs.
    It is NOT insurance, but is sort of like a health savings/share/spend plan. Kind of like a credit union.

    It basically works just like insurance.
    Your costs are shared by ALL members.. and theirs with you.

    I am not a member as my insurance is provided free.. but I have directed a few friends this way when ACA went crazy a few years back and they say they LOVE IT.
    Check it out.

    It is about as bad cost wise for a family as ACA.
