Health Insurance 2007

December 18th, 2007

Over a year ago i talked about getting health insurance. As I discussed in that blog, I ended up with Blue Cross PPO. Over thanksgiving health insurance was being discussed, this time with my sister and her family, and decided I should re-survey the landscape. Especially since Blue Cross jacked the price in March 2007 from $127/month to $170/month.

This time I went with Blue Shield’s PPO 4000 plan. Basically its $96/month for $4,000 deductible. Once deductible is met, Blue Shield covers pretty much everything, as long as i see in-network doctors. But until deductible is met, i pay for everything myself except regular doctor check-ups, which are $35. Of course, you never know if everything is really covered. Once again, thanks to eHealthInsurance for making it easy to find and apply for my current plan.

    tried to peek at the plan u mentioned – is it actually called “Shield Spectrum PPO Savings Plan 4000” or have they dropped yours from the listing?

    I went through the same thing, but I went through My Insurance Expert. They found the right plan for me but were some how able to secure a hike up price for me. I don’t know how but definatley thankful. When prices did sore again they notified me and we were able to change my plan again to keep it about the same.

    health insurance should only be taken from reputable companies, you really don’t want to get it from fly-by-night companies ;`*

    I have noticed that of all sorts of insurance, medical health insurance is the most controversial because of the clash between the insurance coverage company’s necessity to remain profitable and the client’s need to have insurance policy. Insurance companies’ income on health and fitness plans are incredibly low, therefore some businesses struggle to make a profit. Thanks for the strategies you discuss through this site.
