Dear MetroCARE, About four years ago our insurance premiums rose to an unaffordable $2000.00 per month. Faced with no coverage for the first time in our 37 years of marriage, we learned about MetroCARE and were accepted into the program.
I had been suffering with chronic hip pain for some time and, once we no longer had health insurance I wondered how much longer I would be able to work. Our family doctor, Thomas Chapman D.O. after seeing me for the hip problem, suggested that we might check with MetroCARE to see if there was anything they could do for me.
The end of the story is that Dr. Robert Haas, his team & Liberty Hospital joined with MetroCARE and gave me a hip replacement with no out-of-pocket expense. The surgery was super successful and I was back to work in record time – PAIN FREE! MetroCARE, Dr. Haas, and Liberty Hospital gave me my life back.
We now (as of January 1, 2014) have coverage with Coventry obtained through the Marketplace. Without the subsidies offered to us, our premiums are $276.15 per month.
Are we happy? ABSOLUTELY!
