Holy shieet, $30k? Kids are "on their parent's plan" here until 18 years old, meaning that the parent doesn't pay extra. My parents have never paid more than €2500 per year for our family of four back when I still lived there. As a student, I get €85 for my €95 plan (no dental though) from the IRS.

Welfare state, man. Doesn't kill me that's for sure.

You live in a civilized nation with a functional government tho.

Same here, only I'm on my parent's plan until 26 years old or until I finish my education, whichever will hit sooner.

Yeah. It's a lot of iPhones.
