36. $1000.00 per month when your 65 or older?!?!
BS,you can pay that much when your in your 30's and HEALTHY.

Try phoning up a bunch of insurance companies when your 65,tell them of any and all medical problems you have or have had and see what they come up with.

Then call them when your 70,call them when your 80. Of course that's all a moot point because even the most basic coverage would be completely out of reach to someone that age unless they made millions before they retired.
