Two years ago my son had arthoscopic surgery.  We are using our BCBS insurance through my DH's new job (no one around here takes Tricare in any form) and it cost us $25.  Now, 2 years later, DH had the same surgery and at admission it cost us $250.00.  Got a bill yesterday for other dr. visits and insurance is paying less and less and our portion is more and more. DH gets alot of stuff done at the VA, but that doesn't help me that much.  

 

Obamacare at work?  If so, I am not loving it.  Our finances can't afford for us to get sick.

Ouch!  That is a huge difference for the same procedure.  Does that include your deductible?

Yes.  Our copays have gone up in the past two years.  Our deductibles went up.   It's frustrating.
