How do you search for a new doctor or dentist for your insurance? My current method is searching on my AETNA portal and then yelping each doctor but it’s been highly inefficient.

I would honestly try yelp and then cross check with the AETNA portal to make sure they are either in network! I found this to be much better because I had a dentist tell me I needed over 10,000 in dental work when I had two other opinions say I only needed 2,000. Dentist are great at ripping people off

I used to use this, but only a fraction of the doctors are on the platform. And I was running into a lot of cases where the online schedules did not match their true availability as well as them not being covered under my insurance (even if they had listed it). Ended up being more of a waste of time.

I start with the insurance portal to make sure to stick with in network docs only. Then I also check with ZocDoc, Yelp, Healthgrades, and also the state's doctor license registration site (you can check if there are any public malpractice suits listed; but it typically will not show settled lawsuits, which are the majority of malpractice allegations).

I call the 1-800 number. Then send me a big list of everyone in like 20 miles. Then I use RateMD or Healthgrades. I prefer doctors that have a good degree and usually run their own small business than in a big chain. The doctors in a big hospital don’t have as much time to do an in depth research about your financial history.

Get several local recs from colleagues, family, friends (best quality control is people I know, not internet reviews). Then check those doctors for location, hours, insurance fit.

Does your firm have a legitimate amount of projects still going on right now? I was told by various leaders at my firm banking and Healthcare were still busy as ever, and then I ask people in the practice, and they say their clients have hit the pause button on almost everything. Would like to think "pause" is all this will be, but have to believe mass layoffs are just a matter of time. Meanwhile, tech is the only industry hiring 😩

25M, single, healthy, CA-based. Should I pay ~$450/year for a healthcare plan with access to an HSA? Would primarily use it as an investment vehicle. Differences between HSA plan and the free, non-HSA are very similar given my employer reimburses large portion of deductible. Likely will be at company for 2-3 years and also based in CA - where I believe HSA gains gets taxed.. so HSA is only double-tax advantage

I’m struggling with depression, lonely, single, unfulfilled by work, and have nothing to look forward to in life. The few people I reached out to said I need professional help. I’ve tried for 7 months (meds, therapy) but it didn’t help - maybe 7 months is too short but when you’re struggling even a day is too long. Losing my job soon (which means no health insurance). What a life...

When updating your LinkedIn is it good or bad to specify what “type” of consultant you are in the title?

Has anyone successfully lowered their ER bill? I had an ER visit last year - X Ray, Urology, no surgery, basically went there to be told to take ibuprofen. Got a bill totalling $2.5K after insurance. I have a low cost medical insurance with the $2.5K deductible and didn't go to the doctor much last year, so they ended up charging to the max. Talked with the hospital and insurance, got the itemized statement, but no help. Please share your wisdom with this clueless foreigner, TIA 😭
