Offers coverage to individuals in Seattle.
I'm also very happy with Premera. I'm paying for one, and I believe
it's about $150 a month.
My rates, for self, spouse and kids, with Premera Blue Cross, are
$548/month, going up to $673 this month. Coverage is $500 deductible.
I'm pretty happy, but will probably up the deductible to $1000 to lower
my rates from $670/month.
The insurance that I've been describing in this thread has been Premera Blue Cross; as names and ownership seem to change like
clockwork. To add to the mystery, Premera Blue Cross has been sending
announcements to insurees that it is planning to change it's status from
nonprofit corporation to a publicly traded company. ~~I'd be interested
in any thoughts on the implications of this for members, other than now
expecting our fees to go in part towards dividends to shareholders (and
salary jumps for executives no doubt), and perhaps also getting an
infusion of investment.
~Editors Note: Info on status change available at:
* I use a premera blue cross ppo which considers me a business, with the
same rates as they give employers with 20 or fewer employees.
~$568/month for self spouse & kids with a $1,000 deductible on
catastrophic stuff, or $673 for $500 deduct.
