Increasing price on insurance for 2012 again

Today at work, our supervisor give us the new insurance enrollment for 2012. I open up the package, and check on the price, it apparently increased up $4.25 for single on next year per paycheck, which is really scary to a lot of people. I am single, I still okay with it. For others, who also insured with their spouse or family including children, that is outrageous increase. It will be the same on our dental insurance also. Insurance is going up; tax might also go up too. How can we survive under such economic environment. What do you think of it?

I hate to burst your bubble but my health insurance for 2012 will not go up! I work at a college and the last two years it has not gone up. The college I work at joined a number of other colleges in with a cettain insurnece company. It has helped people to take advantage of the program and kept the cost of insurance the same. That was not that way in the begining! When the college I worked at joined this program,the first year our cost per month went up over $50.00! It was like a slap in the face,a kick in the butt and a punch in the stomach! My raise that year didn't even come close to covering the increase! We had no warning of this until the early meeting to sign up for it or not! Most people employed at the college were furious,like me! That was like 6 years ago. Of course insurnace would go up every year until this 2 years ago! I sucks no matter how you look at! We need it and we have to pay for it!

That is what meant by inflation: everything has an increased price tag. The food is, the gas is, and the insurance policy is. The insurance company involves lots of personnel at work and they are not paid by thin air. They are paid thru your premium and so, an increase in their salaries can come from nowhere but their customers: you.

I have to say that the medical industry here in america is all about the money. What I do not like about insurance here is that when you really need it, you get denied. They're not interested in paying for any medical claims. It only for them to collect money month after month. It is scary, very scary. It is also a shame and a rip off.

That seems to be the way with everything in every country these days, infact I think it is getting very scary how the prices are all going up, it is becoming very hard to keep ahead of the bills and I am not as bad off as some, it is very sad but scary....
