Private health insurance - what to do?

Talk about a racket! Try getting private health insurance.

Reading the reviews none of them are any good! Doesnt seem to matter if its BCBS, Aetna, United / Golden Rule, etc - there is always someone that thinks their for crap.

I just got off the phone with one customer rep that was as usless as t*ts on a bull.

I think he took downers before answering my call!

My Cobra is overly expensive - $465/mo, and I simply cant pay it any more. Trying to get my own plan and ugh.

Who do you use?

For now im signed up with United Health / Golden Rule - dont know if I will stay with them but at $180/mo for a PPO - its way better then the $465 Cobra!

I have private healthcare because of our business. I pay $770.00 a month for a family plan that I've had for years. But they pay very well. I believe its United healthcare. But now with the Gov. reform plan thats fixin to start its going to change. Dont know if its going to be better or worse tho.

Try looking into reserve national insurance. I dont know if they do anything in MD but their rates dropped my insurance by $100 a month for me and cut my mother's in half for the same coverage we had with blue cross blue shield.

This. It's the only insurance worth having.

Take care of yourself. Exercise, eat right, and you'll be good to go.
