I am a retired, widowed woman. I have a daughter who is still in college. I was allowed to continue my insurance coverage through my employer after retirement, but the policy (which is very good) costs me $520 per month. I have my daughter, still in college, insured on a separate policy thorugh the Oregon Medical Insurance Pool because she was rejected by other insurance companies due to an existing condition. This coverage costs me $297 a month. Luckly I can afford to pay for these premiums, but it is a huge chunk of my income. I live a pretty simple life financially, partly due to choice and partly due to the huge amount I have to pay for insurance.
