A few friends have asked me what I do for health insurance. I started doing COBRA, which lets you continue the health insurance from your previous employer at the same group rate your employer paid. My bill was north of $400 for a PPO dental and health plan. Way too much money. After two or so months of COBRA, I kept my PPO dental plan because I have a tooth that still bothers me, and I dropped the PPO health plan in favor of an emergency plan, with a $5,000 deductible and a max coverage of $2M. The new health plan is a little more than $100 a month, and is only there to help with health emergencies that would cost huge sums of money. I found and purchased the new health plan through eHealthInsurance.com, which I’ve been happy with.
