Hi all, with dh out of work a few months now we had to get the kids signed up for MCHIP for health insurance. Of course we now can't use our wonderful Dr. Sears for pediatrics as she doesn't take any of the MCHIP options. I am going with another ped who takes Priority Partners, United or Maryland Physicians Care. Anyone care to express a preference over those three? I have to make a decision by May 5th. I want as much flexibility for doctor/hospital choice as possible since I have a high risk kid with one kidney who could one day need care. Thanks!<br><br>
And can I just say how crazy is COBRA. You have no job, here is a hugely expensive option for you. Even just dh and me is insane. AGGGGGHHHH! I really hope he finds work soon.

Hey Lorrie,<br>
Timonium may be a hike for you, but we've been very pleased with Dr. Moy at Potomac Physicians. Maryland Physicians care has been very good to us. Kids have had surgeries at St. Joes, Mercy and Hopkins. Lots of specialists options. Feel free to give a call if you still have my number or PM me.

Thanks for talking to me. It really helped narrow my choices down.

Just talked to my aunt. She has United. She self refers to most specialists, but there is a $4 copay on most prescriptions.

United only has co-pays if you're over 18. Caleb was on United and he never had a co-pay. I carry united (not that I use it) and I don't have a co-pay either.<br><br>
We see Dr. Beams in Columbia/Laurel. She takes everything except tricare I think... We love her but when DH goes into the Army we'll have to leave her <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
