If for so?

The best deal is the HDP with PwC contributions to your HSA. I was lucky and haven’t had many medical expenses the last few years so have been able to stash away a few thousand that will be able to cover any out of pocket costs that come up. That’s the route I’d recommend if your health conditions will allow it.

If you have a monthly prescription, you're paying 5k annually then ^

PwC 3 you don't seem to understand how insurance works. You should be paying the 5k out of pocket. Insurance is for low probability, high severity type events.

You don’t seem to understand that nothing is covered by insurance unless you meet your deductible ^

So if you have a prescription, you’re paying up to 5k per year for it. ^

As you should

Yes. Think about it. We have a tax system that allows employers to offer health care where the cost is excludable from income. So, health 'insurance ' has turned into a massive package to pay for anything health related since it is subsidized by tax dollars. And the cost has ballooned to a point where you and many others complain about it. Everyone agrees on this but no one wants to change it. Your asthma meds would only be $2,500 if you didn't have to get them through your 'health insurance ' plan.

Start by telling everyone to eliminate the tax exclusion on employer provided health care

Can't decide if this thinking is crazy or smart: Staying in consulting for another 1-1.5 years for good maternity healthcare benefits and smoother pathway to ramp off and back on work, with opportunity to extend leave further with limited professional risk (e.g., in corporate a backfill might become your permanent fill). Worried that this A.) could result in staying much longer than planned B.) would still ultimately result in crazy consulting hours and C.) wouldn't go as smoothly as idealized
