Got a pitch on a policy by a representative for an outfit called Alliance for Affordable Services. Sounds like they've got a lot to offer (of course), and they'd be around $220/month. My current provider is going up to $285! Anyone have any input? TIA [:)]

that's what I have... the rates are impossible to beat, you get a prescription card, choice of doctors, but can only use recommended dentists. I saved about $400 last year over my last plan.

By any chance, do they have a website? Guess I'll just go search Google... [url]www.affordableservices.org[/url]

I used to sell a competing product. Problem is is that companies with low first year premiums usually have high rate increases in future year Look at a company called John Alden Life Insurance-- great health plan and great customer service

Hell, I'm paying $859/month to keep my Aetna-PPO through COBRA. This is for myself, the wife, and family (as many children as you have). I think I'm getting reamed.

I've heard of a group called the N.A.S.E.(National Assoc. of the Self Employed). They supposedly offer a whole lot to self employed folks.

mattja, that's about what I'm paying per month with Aetna for my wife and I (we're in our early 70's). Depending on your and your wife's medical situation, that might not be out of line. Of course, you wont' know until you get quotes.z

In my previous post, I mentioned that I sold a competing product... It was NASE, the National Association of the Self Employed.] I quit because they low balled the first year, then decreased benefits and increased premiums often after the first year
