Maggie's Farm - a comment on Insurance

An interesting comment on Insurance costs at Maggie's Farm:
Cheap Insurance
Via No Left Turns:
Private insurance works well where itís least regulated. To find the unaffordable disasters, you must head to states such as New York or New Jersey that have pioneered the reforms Obama is peddling for the entire country. . . .

A 55-year-old man in Allentown, Pa., can choose from 99 plans starting as low as $141 a month for hospital coverage. A zero-deductible HMO plan costs $418 a month. Or he can pick a more flexible PPO, with a higher deductible and pay less monthly out-of-pocket for the premium.
The difference between states accounts for the majority of the insurance costs. Posted by DaveH at August 26, 2009 8:26 PM | TrackBack
