CandaceM23 Posted February 22, 2009 Share Posted February 22, 2009 I was recently laid off from a company that I worked with for 9 years .... Thank goodness I found another job within two weeks of being laid off. I was talking with my new boss yesterday and he showed me a bit of information on their health care plans. It looks like their provider is Blue Cross Blue Shield and I have a choice between an HMO or a PPO. I've never had the option before and I'm relatively clueless when it comes to HMO's. I've always had a PPO and paid the premium to go where ever I wanted. It looks like the cost per paycheck for the HMO is $18. The cost for a PPO per paycheck is $80. I'm really not all that concerned about the cost of the plans ... I'm just worried about the options. I've done a bit of reading on the interwebs about HMO's and they sound incredibly strict. Can anyone tell me of their experiences with a HMO? Good, bad, so so? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
