Is this kosher? Kaiser Health News’ Phil Galewitz explains: Rabbi Craig Ezring, who receives health insurance through a small corporation he founded, saw his health care costs increase by 38 percent after the death of his wife and heart bypass surgery. “An insurance broker told him his small business insurance rate is based on the age of the owner of the company. So, Ezring posted on his blog that he was looking for a younger woman who wouldn’t mind marrying him to help him get cheaper coverage.”
