Anyone know somebody in the Grand Forks area that pays for their own health insurance (not through an employer) and will be seeing their premiums increase a lot — maybe double or even triple — come January 2014?
Just as an example, the lowest a 30-year-old man or woman who is a nonsmoker could pay per month in 2013 for an individual health insurance plan is $47.20 under Blue Cross Blue Shield. Next year, the lowest monthly cost is $179.07.
If this sounds your situation, I would like to talk to you for a Grand Forks Herald story. You can contact me on this blog, call me at (701) 780-1108 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
