The Los Angeles Times consults with Healthcare Survival Guide coauthor Martin Rosen

The Los Angeles Times quotes Healthcare Survival Guide coauthor Martin Rosen December 1. In a story on the expiring COBRA subsidy, in which the federal government paid 65% of a laid-off worker’s health insurance premium, journalist Kathy Kristof solicits Rosen’s advice concerning health insurance options for the unemployed.

Kristof also shares with her readers some of the cost-saving tips found in The Healthcare Survival Guide, including finding a part-time job that offers benefits, applying for coverage through a state-run high-risk pool, or negotiating a discount with your doctor.

    Major Medical Risk Ins. is a joke. You are literally forced to go with a HMO, which is the cheapest, under the unbrella of plans administrated under Blue Cross.

    I will wait and see how much my cobra insurance will be in January and then make the comparsion in costs. I am not in an HMO (nor never want to be again), and the insurance I have with my former employer is excellent. I will eligible for regular insurance in July, when my 18 months are up and I can get the certificate, which is the key that I will need to get normal insurance with a pre-existing condition.

    Overall, the insurance companies are forcing people to lie, to get insurance. They will turn you down if you say you take asprin.
