Have you seen any changes with your Health Insurance Policy lately?

Got a letter with an Insurance card explaining changes on our policy: Now members would have to pay $50 for emergency admission. And also there is going to be a charge for $100 for hospital admission. Beginning coverage we didn't have any co-payments. There was not a single out-of-pocket expense. I'm just hoping that insurance premiums don't go up too much. What about you moms any changes of your Health Insurance Policy??????

  • Our insurance has always sucked. Our premium is around $600 a month, our deductible is $5k, and copays (once the deductible is paid) are $50 for an office visit and $150 for ER visits.

  • Whatever changes happen I still count us fortunate to have insurance at all. Hubs has a heart and lung condition and is still recovering from his auto accident. Without my employee health insurance he probably would have died.

  • its been doing that for years. I would say your lucky if your just now getting a copay. compared to most insurance out there, yours still sounds pretty good. I'd be thrilled with a $50 copay for an ER visit. I went last month and owe almost $1000.
