What People are Paying for Health Insurance

In California, one person told me that the cheapest insurance they could find — for one person, with very little coverage and a high deductible — goes for $330 a month.

I talked to a dog walker in Seattle who pays $675 — without dental coverage.

Another person reported that their bargain basement plan in Minnesota costs $250 a month.

In Dallas, $378 a month for a catastrophic plan with a $10,000 deductible.

And that’s if there’s just one of you: A freelance writer told me she’d had breast cancer, and her husband, a freelance photographer and photo editor, is an insulin- dependent Type 2 diabetic. They live in suburban New York, and currently pay $1,484 a month for coverage.
