Sorry, no etymologies found.
Since my health insurance deductible is $27,200 Pesos, the cost was totally out-of-Dawg´s-pocket.
These policies are renewable from as little as 5 days for up to 36 months, and vary in deductible from $0 to $2,500 USD.
If your deductible is that high you are basically paying for your doctor visits and insurance your not really using.
IF you are to have insurance, HSA + high deductible is the smart play.
Research shows that when their deductible is that high they will put off needed care.
Once the deductible is met, our policy covers 100% of anything.
For our insurance costs, my husband and I pay $950.00 per month to insure 4 people, and our deductible is $5000.00 per family.
I called the insurance company up and they stated: We categorize the iPhone as a computer, NOT as a phone, therefore it falls under a different class of insurance and your deductible is $50″
Vs a Health Care Plan, such as the one we have today, where the deductible is LIFE itself?
For every American that wants to follow blindly because we hate what the last administration did to us I ask you can you say yes to a health plan that the deductible is $5000. per individual and $10000 per family. (why any reporters are not asking about this part is beyond me) This is around page 200 of the purposed plan.
