A comparison of monthly insurance premiums: Highest are MA, NY, NJ… and AK


How much does health insurance cost? Well, that depends.

We picked up this chart online from healthinsurancesort.
com, which got the info from ehealthinsurance.com. You might notice that both of the sources are selling insurance, and so … with anything else, you might want to consider the source.

However, it’s too interesting to ignore: highest family monthly health insurance premium is $965, in Massachusetts, and the lowest is $269, in Iowa.

New York and New Jersey aren’t far behind. Then comes Alaska.

We saw this courtesy of a friend named Jeff Levy on Twitter (hey, Jeff!) who we’ve never met. Jeff says he’ll be re-visiting this after Jan. 1, 2014, when the Affordable Care Act comes into effect. We’ll be thinking about that too.
