    My wife and I are self employed. Our insurance with blue Cross is over 1700.00
    A month. We are 61 and 62 years old. I just
    Can’t see affording the cost and increase
    Much longer. I have a 1900 dollar deductible. I would like a HSA approval high
    Deductible to bring the premium down. My Bcbs agent could only save me about 250.00 a month for 6000.deductable what the heck. Yes Bcbs could help the small business people and the government too
