How much is health ins coverage as an LPN?

Nurses LPN/LVN


Hello, I recently applied to LPN school. My husband and I were talking last night about the fact we are paying $800/mo at his employer for our family healthcare coverage. We are hoping that if I can finish school and start working (mabye for LTC) we can get a better deal on healthcare insurance. Can anyone tell me what is typical of a LPN (contribution weekly or monthly) for a family healthcare plan?

I pay $270/mo for the Blue Cross premium plan for my husband and I. $800 is outrageous! It will depend on the employer, but I can't see you paying that much. I work for a large nation wide hospital chain.

I work for a county run LTC facility and pay $36.00 every two weeks for single coverage. This includes medical, dental, prescription and optical. Not sure what the rate is for family, certainly just as reasonable.

I've worked for several LTC facilities in the city where I reside and have paid health insurance premiums as a single person with no dependents. Some of the premiums for family health insurance are outrageous in these places. For example, I worked at a corporate-owned LTC facility that was charging $496 biweekly for family health care (employee + spouse + dependents). That's a few dollars shy of $1,000 per month.

County facilities, VA hospitals, federal prisons, and most hospitals are able to offer good quality benefits at much more affordable rates.
