Our single biggest worry

The cost of keeping our family healthy is our single biggest worry. Our insurance premiums keep rising exponentially and now compete with the mortgage for a portion of our income. And for what? It took a year to pay off our portion of my husband's preventive care colonoscopy.

Health reform legislation has shined a little ray of hope on our situation. My oldest can be covered on our policy until he he is 26. We might get some help with the small business health insurance tax credits. Who knows, maybe I can even afford to get my own colonoscopy ?
