    thats what the home page says but so did others I looked at until they actully sent me my eligible plans or i talked to someone.

    Like I said i tried about 15 different kinds and nothing was comparable to what I got through my employer and it was 700+ for all of them.

    I briefly looked over the details.
    It said it covers 100% of most of your medical needs.

    Most being the definitive word, would have to look into it further.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Sitting in the ER last night with my X girlfriend she had to pay 200 just to get out.

    This is what they did:

    Gave her scripts for high blood pressure medicine. that cost a hundred bucks

    A shot of morphine

    And a cup of that good hospital crunchy ice.

    I'm leaving the insurance industry for more stable pastures but I'll tell you this. Insurance is designed to "make one whole" after a catastrophic loss it is protecting against such as a fire, major medical necessity, accident, death.....etc. When mandates are issued to the companies the price goes up, so in a roundabout way the employer is forced to pay for the contraceptives through higher premiums and deductibles. That said I think ED treatment coverage is absolutely STUPID, it's a choice to partake in Viagra and it's competitors and there is no medical necessity for such, in fact people with heart conditions risk other insurance companies such as life insurers having to pay a death claim cause someone had a heart attack from misuse, or if they do happen to live the health insurance resources have to be utilized to treat their self induced heart attack so it can actually serve as a net negative from a health issue standpoing.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    HMO or PPO? Big difference, in a PPO you have flexibility when there is no network provider available, in an HMO they will nail you during that situation.

    terrible. One time in between jobs without helath insurance i was so sick, acute intestinal infection, that after throwing up for 2 days i lost consciousness after sleeping on the bathroom floor. My daughter called the ambulance, they gave me some basics meds and discharged me with in hours. the next day almost the same thing happened, I called myself this time, they tried to discharge me again and I told them im will not leave, they will have to get security to remove me. Also my family doctor was the head of their board, I let them know and I told them unless my doctor tells me in person or on the phone that its OK to go home nobody will make me leave. They addmitted me but it was 1000$ dollars in ambulance fees alone??????? I live 6 mins from the hospital!

    OTOH I am glad the people were there to know how to deal with this. What really bothered me though was that they prescribed the most expensive meds. And I know about beta blockers.

    Something has always bugged me. Pharmaceutical reps can take doctors out to eat, on golf vacations, and other monetary inducements to push their product legally but if a radio DJ or radio company takes anything besides a cd or promotional materials they can be fined heavily under payola laws. The worst thing that can happen if a DJ pushes crap is you buy a cd that blows, but a medicine pushed can kill or mess you up. Priorities anyone?
