first of all I am a very liberal and my DH is very conservative. My DH liked a lot of Obamas idea like making it illegal to deny coverage due to pre existing conditions and put caps on the amount that they can make you pay out of pocket. My dhs only real concern was the part about the public option. He thinks that putting a government run option out there would put all of the other companies out of business so my question to you is If there is a public option out there would you stick with what you have or go with the cheaper option? Do you think that having this other option out there would put private insurance companies out of business.? My personal opinion is that it MIGHT put them out of business but my experience with my insurance company is that I wouldn’t care if it did because they don’t care about the patients all they care about is money so if they go out of business then too bad for them.

(cont) They deserve to go out of business's for treating people they way they do. My DH has a VERY serious medical condition and it took me 6 months to get him an appointment with a specialist and after waiting that long the dr said he didn't really know much about my dhs specific condition and that he would have to research it and get back to us. that was 3 weeks ago and i have called every week and still he has nothing to tell us!!! I hate insurance companies and they really need regulation IMO

If there was a cheaper option that gave me the same coverage as my current health insurance then I would definately change to the cheaper route. Honestly I wouldnt think about each health insurance company in particular...I would think about me and my family.
You would switch JUST because it is cheaper. I think you may want to wait for MORE details. Just because it is cheaper, doesn't mean it is better.Just saying.

These are very big if's. You don't know what the definition of "cheaper" is and you don't know if it will give you the same coverage. The other thing you need to think about (for your DH's sake) is the amount of specialists that will take the UHC. Many Dr.'s already don't accept Medicare / Medicaid, and if you DH is suffering from something serious a private plan may give him better coverage. Have you talked to your insurance company to see if they can find you a specialists, or are you just going to whomever you were referred to? Sometimes if you want a job done right, you have to do it yourself.
