UC Open Enrollment - ditching Blue & Gold. Which Plan?
Hello. I figure there would be some UC parents here. This is the year we are finally ditching UC Blue and Gold. It is a tough and scary choice as we previously knew exactly what our costs would be and it was a reasonable amount. But so many doctors have left and Brown and Toland is requiring us to travel all over the Bay Area for care as they are too cheap to pay for care close to home. We see a number of specialists and are heavy users so we need something easy. So we are deciding between UC Care and UC Health Savings Plan (Kaiser is out of the question. Been there done that). We are leaning toward UC Care because despite its cost and lack of an accompanying HSA to take the edge off, the costs appear somewhat more predictable than UC Health Savings Plan. I'm wondering if anyone else has made this jump and had any positive or negative surprises with either plan. Thanks!
