Many health plans hide costs in plain sight.
This post is provided by our partner, MetroPlusHealth. Find affordable health plans for New Yorkers of all ages from MetroPlusHealth.
Most plans cover preventive care. This is healthcare that makes sure you get the right screenings and shots to keep you healthy. It’s one of the best things you can do for yourself. And typically, you won’t have a copay. That’s great.
But what if you have an ongoing problem, like back pain? You’re probably going to have a copay for each visit. For most plans, ten weeks of physical therapy could cost you $200 in copays. Feeling stressed, and need a few sessions of counseling? That’s $60. Or what if something unexpected happens, like a fall? An ER visit plus an x-ray could cost you $170. Add a couple of follow-up visits ($30), and your total is $460. For the average paraprofessional earning $41,000 a year, that’s nearly a week’s pay.
You can keep that paycheck and take care of your health with MetroPlusHealth. We believe New Yorkers deserve quality care, at little to no cost. With our basic plan you have no deductibles, coinsurance or premiums. And you have no copays for many common services.
