My ETS date is 15Feb06 and my new job is a contract position....no health insurance.

Who is a good insurer for independent coverage? We looked at BC/BS but they didn't have a plan to fit our needs.

What other companies out there have a good rep? Thanks in advance.

We have our own policy for a PPO through Blue Cross-Blue Shield. Great coverage but you can make a mortgage payment with the monthly installments. Hopefully you can find something with some good benefits, otherwise you get wht you pay for :(

Are most guys you work with using the VA or are they also going through BC-BS?



Yes today is the big day...tonight is the party.

Guys getting out are getting jobs with benefits. I am taking a job that dwarfs my .mil salary...but no benefits.

It's my understanding you can keep Tricare for life but the co-payments go way up. Contact Tricare and ask. This maybe only for retirees. I haven't heard all the details.

We have Tricare Prime for retirees, right now it's dirt cheap and the wife and kids go on base for health care, while I ust the VA for all of my health care needs.

Tricare for us is $1998 per quarter! My seperation is a Med discharge w/ severance pay. I took that instead of fighting for a ritirement so that I could get my current job.

HEY! This is my first post as a civilian!
