Jack Gerbehy  Excellent question!

 

I priced it six years ago and  just priced it out a few weeks back and its no better than using your local insurance rep. 

BTW, this Obamacare is a disaster.

My monthly insurance rate went up $297 per month for my family of five. I have a $9,500 per year deductable and $125 co pay per visit.....I pay more for health insurance per month than most people pay for their mortgage. $1,288.67 PER MONTH -- I shopped this quote for months.

Mostly because of my income level. The more you make, the more you pay nowdays!

This would be an area where NAR could actually do something for its members as it is absolutely brutal as a self employed real estate agent trying to find affordable health care on your own.  It is brutal out there trying to find any affordable health insurance because of Obama (Doesn't) Care!

Jack Gerbehy I do pay a lot! I mean a lot for medical insurance, billed monthly - with reasonable co-pay, I'd say.

NAR benefits tend to be more expensive and have less coverage than the private sector.  I went with Anthem Blue Cross and saved over NAR.

medical insurance is so outrageous.... thank God for Medicare.... you'll love it when you hit 65...

my last health insurance premium was $1,700+/month for the best blue cross blue shield policy with the smallest deductible....and I used it once for a shoulder surgery...one night in the hospital!!

but you can't be without it....as I said, Medicare is a bonus....$100/month and the supplemental for blue cross is $550/quarter.... 100% coverage...

Jack,

My question would be how much NAR is making by providing this to its members...and who is the company that is behind them?  A

Best to discuss options with an expert in the insurance field.  It's confusing to say the least.  I have not contacted NAR regarding medical coverage.

Have not tried it, but to those who need the discount of a group plan and have no other source, it may be an opportunity.
