I just got a statement indicating how much my insurance was valued at for 2011. So this is both the cost of the actual insurance (which I don’t pay) and the cost of all the appointments, prescriptions, labs, etc.
I am very, very, very, very lucky. I pay nothing for my insurance. No employee contribution. No copays except for medications. Other than the medication copay, the only other thing I have to pay for is dental and eyeglasses/contacts.
We are a two person family.
The value of what was covered for us in 2011 exceeds my annual salary.
Feeling both guilty and grateful.
