The role of health insurance?

Am I the only one around here that thinks health insurance is completely backwards? Auto insurance is insurance you have if you have an accident or your car is stolen. It’s to cover big time expenses you can’t routinely deal with. It’s not for replacing the alternator or getting oil changes. Home Owner’s insurance is the same deal. You don’t have it pay to fix a leaky faucet. You have it pay if the home sustains major damage or burns down. Can you imagine how expensive either one of those would be if we expected it to cover routine costs? We’d be complaining we need Auto and homeowners insurance reform too. So why is Health insurance so different? Why not just make it for big ticket items like cancer, heart attacks, etc. and leave everything else for out of pocket? And once people started actually having to pay for their own routine medical costs, then we’d start seeing some actual reform of how health care is priced and delivered.

Is there some sort of reason that Car Insurance costs so much more in Nevada than it does in California?

Im looking into moving, and I cannot help but notice that the quotes I am getting are, well, DOUBLE what I pay in California. Granted, I am a 23 year old male and have a decent driving record, it is kind of shocking to see liability only coverage quoted at $250/month for my two 8 and 12 year old cars, when Im paying $125/mo. as of now in California for the same 100/300 coverage. Can someone explain this? I have some friends that have moved to Las vegas, with the same shocking increase in premiums… (And yes, I need the 100/300 since I own a home)

Trading in car for lower payment?

Hi I have a 2006 Chevy Cobalt SS. I owe about 10 – 1/2K It’s just my payments are about $300/month + $100/Car Insurance. I don’t want to give this car up, but I know I’m going to or need to if I want to save money. The problem is; how do I trade it in when I dont’ have much money for anything, and I want to get a reliable car and so I can lower the payments? How do I get rid of it; but yet get something right away? Because I don’t want to have to wait a month without a car. I can’t afford doing that. Thank you

Expensive hospital bill without insurance??!!!?

I was sick for about a week and a half and I decided to go to urgent care because the health insurance I signed up for through my job wasn t going to take affect until a few days later. The doctor at urgent care did nothing but take my blood pressure and when I explained my symptoms she said that there was nothing she can do and that based on my symptoms I have to go to the ER even though I had no insurance. She then charged me $130 for a 5 minute conversation as to why she couldn t do anything. Outrageous right?! So I went to the ER, I was there for 5 hours and all they did was take an X-ray and tell me the medicine I had to take. I paid a $100 copay with the health insurance rep and she told me that because I went to the ER ONE BUSINESS DAY before it took affect that I was going to be okay and to not worry about the bill and that my insurance should take care of it when I mail it out to them. After a few days of my visit, I received the hospital bill which is $2000 dollars!!!! I nearly had a heart attack. Can someone please tell me if they ve heard of an insurance going back a few days before the affective date to cover the charge or just any advice please I am very stressed out.


Car accident and switching insurance?

Hi, I was with insurance company A and was planning to move into company B in the next few days. I finalised the quote and premium amount and even received the new set of insurance documents from company B and informed the company A of cancellation. But today i met with a minor accident due to rain puddle leading to my car skidding and causing damage. I have filed a claim with company A but I want to understand how this will affect my premium rates with company B. Do I have to inform them beforehand? What will be the best course of action?


How much would my insurance on my new car cost?

I am about to buy my first car but need to know what insurance will cost on my parents plan. The car is a used 2004 Mazda rx-8 and our insurance company is State Farm.

I have worked my a** for over a year trying to get enough money for a decent car and i would be pretty mad if insurance is 1500-2000 a year.

Do doctors prefer insurance to cash?

Hello, My Mother refuses to see (any) doctor because she does not have health insurance, she believes that NO doctor wants to deal with a person that pays cash, that docs only like patients with insurance, and therefore she believes that: a) she’ll receive substandard care, or b) that they won’t see her. My Father was going to buy insurance a couple of months ago just so my mom would go to a doctor, but all the plans are ridiculous in price (thanks Obama), the premiums were to high to cover any non-major medical expenses, so they’d be paying cash anyway plus paying for the insurance, so my father decided against it. My Mother will go on now about how she planned to go to a doctor when she thought that she was going to have insurance but she CAN’T now because she still doesn’t. I have to ask if doctors actually prefer patients with insurance over patients that pay cash, or vice versa, or if it really doesn’t matter? My experience has been that paying cash hasn’t affected the care I was given, albeit I’ve never needed major medical attention (not that my mom does she just hasn’t seen any kind of doctor in years), I could see where docs in a hospital might prefer insurance over cash but I don’t know, please enlighten me. P.S. a little googling has found a lot of news stories about docs switching to all cash clinics and suggestions to people to use cash over insurance, so maybe I can show my mom those and she’ll go to a doctor.

Mobile home insurance part 2?

I found Farmers Insurance in ND will insure our 1977 mobile home for $441 a year. The only one that was willing to insure us without providing documentation of what the owners over 5 years ago did. We are only doing this to be able to become licensed foster parents. ND requires it. Otherwise we wouldn’t bother. When I talked to the agent this morning, I explained that we own it. I found out it covers what renters insurance covers. I also had someone on here yesterday say old mobile homes can be insured with renters insurance. Does it sound like the agent insured us with renters insurance? I really don’t care, so long as it’s legal.


Car insurance for husband and wife.?

Recently I went to insure my daughter and her car in the company me and my wife have been insured for some time. I wanted to include myself in her insurance but it went up in premiums a lot and we decided to insure her without me as an additional driver. Before that (last year to be exact) I insured my wife and I was included as a second driver. Basically, I was advised to do so on the basis that it would be cheaper. I heard about this option before and therefore did not check it properly with this company. This time (with my daughter) this option went an opposite way with higher premiums, so I asked them whether I can exclude myself from my wife’s insurance as well because my insurance allows me to drive any car, but was told: …because you are husband and wife, by law you cannot drive her car without being included in her insurance policy whatsoever… I am suspicious about this statement now and feel that I am being cheated. Does anybody know whether this rule exist or is it just the usual salesmen lie? Thank you.”

How do you switch from motability to owning a car with the UK’s new car insurance policies?

Ok we’ve got a small problem. At present we get a car from motability, but we want to switch to owning our own car, but we have a major problem with this new all cars must be insured at all times or declared SORN scheme. The problem we have is that our motability car goes back in October. We’re in a rural location so we need a car ready for when the switch over happens. At present with the motability insurance their insurance only insures one vehicle, the motability one, and can’t have additional vehicles added to it. We’ve got a few quotes from insurance companies who have told us that when the motability lease expires they will give us the no claim discount based on the motabiity insurance, but they wont give us that discount until the motability car goes back. So what we want to do is get the new car before October, put it on the drive, check everything is ok with it, and then insure it when we start using it on the road when the motability vehicle goes back. Only problem is with this new law we can’t do that without declaring the vehicle SORN. Some of the vehicles we’ve seen come with a few months road tax, so we don’t really want to lose that by declaring it SORN, just for a few weeks (or is the tax disc still valid when you remove the SORN on the car?), we also don’t want to insure the vehicle before the motability vehicle goes back as we wont get any NCB from the new insurer and that will cost us about an extra £500 in insurance (our current insurance price is about £500-£600 but with 0 years no claims it goes up to around £1,000-£1,100 – we have 3 years no claims with motability and I’ve held my driving licence for 6 years). I’ve read that you don’t need this compulsory insurance if the vehicle is in trade, or between registered owners. That is one option, but how long after you buy a vehicle can you keep it in that status, would we be able to keep it like that for a few weeks or is it pretty much instant when we get the car. Obviously I realise I would need some kind of temporary one day insurance to drive the vehicle home after purchase.
