      But 100% plans do exist.  Most of the major insurance companies offer them, at least in Florida.

        claim? I know people who would love to have that, depending of course on what the premium was. All I've seen were "catastrophics" via HMOs, and most HMOs are worse than they ever were.

        My Medicare premium, by the way, with AARP secondary, is a little over $7,000 a year. For that I don't have co-pays and my deductible is puny. I do get my meds from the VA, and before I finally hit a certain level of disability, my cost for a 90 day supply of any med on the formulary was $8. VA can bargain with the Big Pharmas, but Medicare isn't allowed to, Bill Clinton, and of course Obamacare don't.

          My zero deductible, low co-pay platinum plan is awesome, especially if I stay in-network, but it doesn't pay 100% of everything. Many of the diagnostic tests that I have taken have additional fees, I have a $10 co-pay for office visits, meds and a total out-of-pocket maximum of $2000 per year.  

          I've had several CT and MRI scans done that are an additional $150 above what the plan covers, each.  Out of network is of course a different set of numbers, $500 deductible, higher co-pay and higher annual out of pocket.

          13 years with no doctors, now suddenly I have a Osteopath, a Hematologist and a Cardiologist.   I think I liked it better when I had none, but then I'd still have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, an incredibly high White Blood Cell count and worse back pain.  Well actually I still have two of the four but at least they're working on it.
