Kaiser, without argument, from the BAW's, however, we admit that we don't know Aetna...

Sorry Justin, I moved your thread from FYM to ZC and then BC moved it from ZC to LS

Anyway, I have Kaiser and I hate that my freaking premium is now $244 per month!! Luckily my boss pays $100 of that.
They are pretty good about getting me in to see the docs quick when need be but they are horrible to try to call your doc on the phone. Takes 24 hours usually for them to call you back, even for a simple question.

Aetna is horrible. But it seems Kaiser is, too. I have Aetna and the premiums are high and the coverage sucks. Very few things are covered and I still have to pay a lot out of pocket.

At least my copay is only $25 and they cover pretty much everything. Perscriptions are cheap too.

That's alot! I am part of the SEIU. So our Premium is only 15 a month but in our contract by 2007(which it is now) we dont pay medical or dental. But I am working in the Symantec offices where they are paying the premiums.

Isn't the word Aetna Latin for the term "beginning doctors" ???

To say our family's experience with Kaiser is less than satisfactory would be an understatement.

To the contrary, our experiences with Kaiser have been exemplary...! and we've had major health issues....to each their own!
