Re: Re: insurance costs, etc.

Be sure to get the individual account set up so there's no lapse in coverage
or that $150 may increase a lot. That's what my insurance said when I was
looking at a policy for my son when he got too old to be a dependent on my
policy. When it came time to write it, the cost was a lot more than that.
