Nowadays, working families have to make tough choices with limited dollars.

This post is provided by our partner, MetroPlusHealth. Find affordable health plans for New Yorkers of all ages from MetroPlusHealth.

It goes without saying that raising a family is expensive. And the recent spike in cost of living doesn’t help, either. Add to that paying for your family’s healthcare, and you’re looking at a busted budget. The average annual premium for families in 2022 was $22,463. (Singles aren’t faring any better, having to pay about $7,739 in yearly premiums.)  

That’s why it’s great that most health plans cover well-child care with $0 copays. (Well-child care are regular visits that offer screenings and shots to keep your child’s health on track. They’re one of the best things you can do for your child. They’re designed to catch problems early when they’re easier to deal with.)

But anyone raising kids know they’re prone to lots of minor, unexpected problems that will send you to urgent care or the pediatrician. (The top three are sore throat, ear pain and bladder infection.) And it will cost you, unless you have MetroPlusHealth Gold. 

On average, a family with a baby sees a pediatrician nine times a year. With other plans, that’s $200 in copays. That could buy you nearly 100 dozen eggs (at $2.04 a dozen). At MetroPlusHealth, we believe every family deserves quality care at a cost you can afford. That’s why we’re the only plan with no copays.
