Individual Health Insurance Review
In this time of health care reform, it is really important that consumers understand the ins and outs of their health insurance policy. My current plan is with Humana One Insurance. It is a group plan that I have through my Illinois employer. Employees have a choice between a HMO and a PPO. I chose the PPO because of the flexibility of the plan. It is a PPO plan with a $2000 deductible. In my opinion, that is about the only negative of my plan- the high deductible. Our deductible was increased from $1000 two years ago after my employer experienced a high increase to the monthly premium. A high premium increase usually happens because of high claims dollars. The insurance company will pay out more in claims than they take in in premiums. Since both my husband and I are covered on this plan, we each have to meet the $2000 deductible. After the deductible is met, the plan pays 90% of covered charges up to $1500.00. After the $1500.00 is met, the plan will pay all covered charges at 100%. Once January 1 comes, we have to start all over again to meet the deductible.Read more: Humana Health Insurance Policy Review
I have a Wisconsin individual PPO family health plan through Humana One. It's called the Portrait Share 80 and the family deductible is $5,000. With me on this plan are my two children ages 5 and 8 and our monthly premium is about $363. For a single mom this is a bit much for me on premium, but I am very happy with the coverage so I keep paying my premium. This plan is much like group insurance as in Humana covers us at 80% and we are responsible for the remaining 20% once our deductible has been met. We have unlimited doctor office visits co-pays for $35, and unlimited specialist visits for $50. This does not include services rendered during the visit. Which means any diagnosis or treatment we receive during that visit we have to pay for, out-of-pocket, at Humana's negotiated rate (if I go to a doctor in-network) until my deductible is met. The negotiated rate is good as things like x-rays for the kids and some random tests we had to do had a well adjusted rate.Read more: Humana One Review from Wisconsin
This is a great option for people willing to pay 30% co-insurance and save money on premium. For applicants who have had major medical insurance sometime during the last 63 days, the effective date can be as soon as you enroll. For applicants with NO health insurance for the last 63 days you will have two start dates:
1) Once approved your policy starts on the day you requested, as will the coverage for preventive care and accidental injuries.
2) In addition, if you have NO prior insurance for the last 63 days, your start date for sickness begins on the 15th day after the effective date is approved. This means if you are currently sick with a cold or flu or such illness, and you currently have had NO health insurance for the last 63 days, you must have the plan 15 days before you can go to the doctor.
The HumanaOne Copay 70% Plan has three deductibles to choose from: $1500, $2500, and $5000. Each of these plans include 3 office visits per a person per a year. Office visits are only $35 copay for a primary doctor and $60 copay for a specialist or for use of an urgent care visit. Women will be happy to know that Preventive coverage for pap smear and mammogram are NOT subject to deductible or coinsurance.
In the event you need an emergency room visit, the access fee is only $125 per a visit. However, if you are admitted you will not have to pay the $125 fee.
