Premera Blue Cross vs. United Healthcare
« on: November 11, 2015, 12:59:12 PM »
The plan I signed up for under Premera Blue Cross on the WA healthcare exchange is going up by over $100/month in 2016.

There are plans with United Healthcare that are closer in price to what I'm currently paying, and with a lower deductible.

Does anybody have experience with/recommendations for either company, especially in Washington state/Seattle area?  Both had pretty crappy reviews.  I kind of chose Premera at random, so I'm thinking of switching to United Healthcare.  Haven't had to use them yet.  Have found their customer service to be kind of crappy in dealing with a billing issue, though.

Appreciate any feedback!
