Would like to retire but insurance is a big problem. COBRA would cost me $600.00 a month and $965.00 a month for me and my wife. Have had a triple bypass two and a half years ago so no insurance company wants to touch me. Found out a person has to be retired or on disability for two years before they can get medicare and they pay nothing on prescriptions. Anyone out there ever had a problem in this area? What was your solution to it?

    Have you guys heard how much
    the insurance companies want to
    increase their premiums? I wonder if
    this is some convoluted end run
    to get our support for gov't
    health care

    I tried AARP, boy I got a scare.
    I had to go to florida farm bureau for home owners,
    I checked with them on auto, saved me $147 every 6 months.
    statefarm lost all my business

    I currently have Home and Auto thru Metlife.
    Where I worked they sent me 2 other choices
    for retirees with the work discount.
    I called Travelers and Liberty mutual for
    quotes to see if I could save a few bucks.
    Neither of those companies will insure a log
    cabin, only Metlife out of the three
    at $1800/yr.
    Me thinks I'll stay with Metlife.

    I've gone from Allstate to Hastings Mutual....saved $995/year on everything AND they doubled all my plans and cut my deductibles in 1/2.
    Half of the lives they tell about me aren't true.
