Main Question or Discussion Point

We are shopping around for my health insurance and I'm hoping I can get opinions from everybody here about which ones to avoid and which ones you have had a good experience with.

Thanks in advance

A good start is to find a bunch of company names and google search for "<name> sucks" or something similar (try it with swears as well). Doing that convinced me not to buy a hybrid car :wink:

Sorry I don't know anything about specific companies; I'm in Canada where it doesn't really apply as much.

in the states health insurance companies seem to vary a lot from state to state. Where are you?

I am no expert, but also look at your employer, as I think there are usually employee plans. Also, if you are in school, look at your school's health plans.

Also ask each company about group rates. Things like graduating from a certain university can get you a good deal on insurance in some cases; I know it's true for car insurance.
