  • We have insurance through Aetna. We pay a pretty hefty randsom each month, so we expect to be covered in any situation. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. They continually mess with us every time we have a Dr. or counselor appt. of any kind! We pay the co-pay up front and usually get billed for it in the mail...Then, the insurance is supposed to cover 80%, but sometimes we get billing statements that claim Aetna refused to pay. Its so rediculous that we constantly have to play tug-of-war when we pay so much to have insurance. UGH! Just more work for me when I have to call the insurance to debate the bills and then they put me on hold forever each time! My life is complicated enough!

  • We have insurance through DH's work ... I was offered through my work as well, but didn't need it so I took their "buy out" for it. Our insurance is good, we have an HMO. Not too many issues.
