• How much will you have to pay for your medications?
• What are the monthly premiums?
• What other out-of-pocket costs might you incur based on your expected health care usage?
• Are family benefits important? If the decision to go off the employer plan would affect your spouse’s insurance, add the cost of spouse’s coverage to your analysis?
