Health Insurance is Ridiculous.

Open enrollment just ended for Mr. Money’s employer.  Since I’m a stay at home mom, we basically have the option of enrolling in Mr. Money’s health insurance through work, try to enroll through the exchange, or seek another option such as Medi-Share.  This year we ran out of time and enrolled in the health insurance for our whole family through United Healthcare with his employer.  The cost?
