Now I get it! As unemployment surges to unspeakable heights, my nearly two-month search for employment borders on the edge of panic. Highs and lows of multiple job search engines have provided me with more thrills than a roller coaster ride. Being acrophobic, it scares me to death.
But nothing compares to my search for health benefits for me and my two college-age children.
Sorting through various options with an insurance agent, one thing is adamantly clear: To receive adequate health coverage, my monthly premium will run between $670 and $1,300.
Given those parameters, my savings will deplete faster than you can say “health-care reform.”
