I DO offer it so I'll reply to the post. Thanks for your input GLAN;)

Anthem has been great, they use to be Trigon. The rates go up every year, but the coverage seems to be really good. Rates for someone in their mid twenties is around $135 per month. That's with a $10 co-pay.

That is still more than what I am paying. I am paying around $89 a month for a 80/20 coverage for the guys

$89 ? And your looking for a lower premium? Look at your coverage, for 80/20 that sounds about right. Of course if you aren't too concerned with the coverage I'm sure you will be able to find CHEAPer insurance!

this is how I get it so cheap...we don't go through the business. What I do is have the guys get the insurance under them, not under the business and then I just cut them a check every quarter for the cost. That is how I get it so cheap.

Actually I found just just the opposite true - I got lower premiums as a company than as an individual.
