  • I think here in chicago they all are but there are some that mainy deal with Adovacate insurance . These hosiptal just deal with doctors and staff for adovacate care of HMO so everything you may need will be provide through this network only.

  • If I'm understanding right you're looking for Health Ins, not a hospital? We have Golden Rul through United Healthcare and we're very happy with them. For a family of 5 we pay 600/month and that includes vision and dental. We're self employed so we had to take it ourselves.

  • BC/BS is pretty much the largest insurer in the country. So if your just looking at in network providers your pretty much safe with BCBS. But if your trying to decide between them and another company like united healthcare, you have to look at price and benefits. No matter where you are most hospitals will accept most major insurance plans. Especially if your talking about one of the big ones, BCBS, UHC etc.
