It looks like I may be paying for my daughter Zaira’s health insurance next year, so I’ve been asking around on the web for input and heard many great things about Kaiser Permanente Georgia. Unfortunately, I don’t live in Georgia, but back before Z was born I did have coverage from Kaiser Permanente Colorado through my employer there. Of course, now I work in social services caring for other people with greater needs than myself, so not only am I receiving a much lower hourly wage, but my employer doesn’t provide health insurance, either. ::sigh::
My ex has been paying almost $400 per month for health insurance through her employer, so I was pretty fearul when I went to go look at the privately purchased insurance through Kaiser Permanente California, but I couldn’t have been much more pleasantly surprised. For me alone (a 39 year old male) I can get insurance for as low as $109 per month and they have three different plans for my 12 year old daughter’s solo health insurance for $86/momnth or less! I’m a little confused as to why when I put us on a plan together the cost goes up to just over $200, but I’m sure that’s just a website glitch that will get worked out when I call a sales rep.
If you have health insurance through your employer you might want to look at the possibility of getting it online through Kaiser instead. You may find your employer’s not contributing as much as you thought he was.Tags: health, health care, health insurance, insurance, Kaiser, Kaiser Permanente, savings
