thats what i pay employee coverage wise currently. right on outta my small biz pocket
Oh, a small group plan, gotcha. I don’t take those kinds of payments, that’s another dept. I have had individuals paying almost that amount for a grandfathered individual plan though.

One guy in particular had no problem catching up on payments from May to July, total paid was $20,730. Just put it on his credit card like nothing but in his words “I don’t care how much it is I’m keeping my plan.”

Made me feel like the poor fucker I am, but I got a perfect 10/10 survey from him. Those mean a good bonus for me in November, got three so far.
 

whatever

Wait. I thought nobody could afford healthcare in the US and it was free in Europe.
If you have a good job in the US, healthcare quality (knowledge of doctors [US medical universities occupy the top 20 and the like of the best medical universities in the world], speed of getting appointments) is better in the US in my experience living in NYC.

We pay more here in Austria for a lower level of care in the public health system (Austrian medical universities start off at rank 161 in the world and range to the high rank ~600 in the world, with doctors limited to 48-hour weeks -- so have less experience than US medical professionals/surgeons), with longer wait times (3 months for a pulmonologist, 1 month for an endocrinologist, 1.5 months for consultation with a maxillofacial surgeon). That's quite well known, on the public healthcare system I can't change primary care doctors more than once every 6 months.

I will need to buy private health insurance here after the six months of the care that I've experienced -- I know that I'm not happy with it. The private healthcare facilities and providers I've had encounters with are excellent and don't have high wait times. It'll be 80-200 USD extra per month for that.

About $200 family of 3, I'm the only worker.

I never feel like going to the hospital for anything and I tell my wife to go every time she says she's sick or whatever, but she doesn't.

I don't know the details of the plan,
