No American Should Have to Choose Between Health Insurance and Protein Powder or Alcohol
As an example of how affordable basic medical insurance plans can be, there are various individual and family Blue Cross Blue Shield plans available in Michigan (rates in other states will vary) starting at $173.18 per month for the Individual Care Blue Plus plan, $52.82 per month for the Flexible Blue II plan, and $49.30 per month for the Young Adult Blue plan.
Of course, the rates for these plans vary based on age, number of family members covered, deductibles, co-pays, procedures and services covered, annual out-of-pocket maximums, etc., and the rates above are the minimum monthly premiums. But for many Americans, maybe that is all they need is the most basic coverage available. As I have pointed out before, basic medical insurance is currently available right now for millions of Americans at about the same monthly cost of a cell phone.
