We are looking at switching our insurance for 2012. Right now we have a group health plan that allows us to see a Dr outside the group health network. Our pediatrician is outside the network, and she is amazing. She does not bug us about vaxxing, and is in general very laid back and on par with our beliefs.
The group health plan we are looking at would save us a significant amount of money, but it would require staying in network. We are expecting another baby and looking at all the baby well exams next year, but the thought of ending up with a Dr that is not selective / delayed vax friendly is very concerning to us.
Can anyone speak positively to their pediatrics group in any area? We have used their urgent care for the kids and never gotten flack there for our vax choices (and in general have had really positive experiences with their staff in every dept)... However, I got some weird letter in the mail from GH a few months ago saying "is your child up to date on vaccines? these are the recommended ones by this age" and I'm afraid that means they have some sort of institutional policy that would make going there very difficult. I don't mind having to argue or disagree a bit, but I don't want to have anything serious come of it.
