Has anyone else's health insurance premium sky rocketed?

Been MIA a little while and a little slow with this post. I'm with Blue cross and my premiums are up around 35% compared to last year. Has anyone else's health insurance gone up like that?

Blue Cross and stayed flat for last two years. You're in a shitty group, or you've got some messed up stuff getting you rated, if you're on your own.

they must not have much faith in your ability to detonate your vest resulting in immediate death without medical bills.

Up around 10% in 2016 and around 20% in 2015, with increased deductibles, and max OOPs. Currently paying $880 in the state of NJ, Aetna plan, 2 adults 2 healthy children.

NY/NJ are very different beasts when it comes to insurance, on average, the premiums here are well over 100% higher.

Most medium sized businesses are doing this, it isn't a secret, and as predicted, the worker gets fvcked....the increases might be marginal, but the plan is decreasing in quality as well, with higher OOP costs.

My Kaiser HMO plan turned into PPO. So I have to pay higher OOP costs but I'm stuck within the Kaiser network. I am also looking for a new job.

Wasn't sure of when you last shared that and since premiums adjust annually...

I think the last time it was brought up referenced 2016 rates. Should get 2017 stuff in a few months I guess.
