health care

I have worked since I was 16. I am now 59. My husband passed away in 2013 at age 60. If that wasn't enough of a set back in my life, I now find out my health care will go from $362. @ month to $695. @ month. My company who now pays $300. towards the insurance now want to pay nothing! Why is were I live and my age used to determine my rate? I feel this is discrimination. I don't know what I am going to do.
