Question How much do you pay for health insurance?

Well my health insurance with the military is about to 'expire' so I was thinking about getting the health insurance offered by my company, but was wondering what others were paying a month for health insurance. I believe they told me it was $60-70 a week for a single male for PPO plan. Seems kind of high to me, but then again I've never had to pay for health insurance.

$54 a week for a family of 4 with no vision coverage. BCBS. $35 co-pay and a $5000 deductable.

The wonderful state of MI is a no-fault auto insurance state and my health insurance will not cover an auto related accident. Which means my auto insurance is higher becuse it has to cover health.

This is "affordable" if you ask my employer. I think I'm going to move to Canada.

If I don't go through my employer, who would be a good provider based on your experience?
