    Health Insurance

    Advertisements



    I searched the forum and couldn't find anything helpful so maybe some of you guys/gals who have gone through the process can help me out.

    I need to get health insurance so that I can start rotations (just passed the Step 1). I took some time off and my previous insurance expired so now I need to get insurance.

    I need to know of a plan that will cover all the immunizations shots, titers, x-rays for positive PPD test (I had the BCG vaccine), and physicals.

    Anyone have any good plans with low premiums that covers most of these? I'm not trying to spend too much out of pocket to cover the vaccines.

    Thanks in advance.

    Before you try looking for insurance that covers all those vaccine's, etc, try calling your local health dept. Most of the shots/titers were done for either free or a reduced cost at mine (i know the shots were free and i think titers were like 45 or 50 bucks if i remember correctly). They also should be able to get you a simple chest xray to rule out TB. Just tell them you don't have insurance. You will still need health insurance while on rotations, and if you can't find anything fairly cheap, try using the school's again.

    I got a physical, ppd test, and a Hep B titer done for like 24 bucks at a clinic that does reduced costs. It was a long waiting time and took long to get the results also. They are cheap but a pain. AUA charges around 90 a month for their crappy insurance for 25+. I ended up getting BC/** EPO plan which covers 600 a year for any "wellness" visits - ur physical, ppd, titers, etc. and don't forget that 600 at their contracted rate. also covers drugs, which is rare at a low premium (mine is 155 a month). covers sickness visits well. I was in Fl and needed to go to the ER for a serious otitis media that was excruciating and my 100 copay was fine. no bills, no questions, everything taking care of.

    Well I have it easy because I am Polish born so I get the polish health book signed by the university. If you do not have Polish citizenship then just read other posts everything has been stated already.

    Have you tried to ask your local health department if the immunizations shots, titers, x-rays for positive PPD test is free or it can be covered in any types of insurance.
