Re: Health Insurance

In the early days we had catastrophic coverage. Now just DAN. General health care costs very low in ASIA, so we go out of pocket for our care, not too much as we are still healthy. Anything serious and we will go back to NZ.

Re: Health Insurance

I have a health insurance which has great deals. It covers everything and the good thing is it has a policy that I can add my siblings as a beneficiary in my health insurance.

I'm getting closer to taking a year off from work.

What are good options for health insurance? I'm in good health so am mainly interested in some sort of high deductible plan.
Hi Epic:

Im a new yorker....To date there are new laws that allows an individual to obtain health insurance at a low cost. One that i can think of is "HEALTH PLUS". Besides, base on your income, and if there is none-the Dept of Social Service can help. Your Boat is your abode and can not interfere in any decision made....Try to obtain a post office box for mailing. You are an American and you have worked and paid taxes in the past and you are entitle for health insurace.....Please remember that Pres. Obama passed a law and that is something. many people outcast him, but, this health insurance Law that has been granted is a good thing for all...KEEP YOUR HOPES UP MATE...

Re: Health Insurance

" You are an American ... and you are entitle for health insurace....."

Raven, you must be in an alternate reality. There's no such "entitlement" in US law in this one. And what is available, at what cost, last year, this year, or next year, may all be radically different as the laws change.

Most of the lower-cost plans that are available are HMO-type plans. If you are not in the physical coverage area around your residence? You're out of network, and that can mean out of coverage including out of emergency hospital care.

Obama passed a law? No, actually, Congress passes laws, the President can only sign them after the fact. And Obamacare ain't quite here yet.
