    Hi guys.

    Looking for some help here. So my old health plan got dropped and now I have to chose between Blue Shield and Kaiser. They both seem fine but I have heard nightmare stories from both. Any one out there have any advice? I would be getting the basic plans from either one. Does any one know which one is more gay friendly? Any help/advice will be appreciated. I am in the LA area, (santa monica CA to be more precise) and if you are under any of these plans and have a good gay friendly doctor, please also let me know.

    Thanks!

    I work in health care and both have their cons. I would definitely go with Blue Cross Blue Shield. Trust me, if something happens to you with Kaiser they will put you out of the hospital in a heart beat.

    um...I LOVE Kaiser...

    ...and I have a chronic condition...I have never had a bad experience in 10 years at Kaiser...I have had two doctors in that timeframe...pay a super low co-pay...and my HIV meds which cost $1,000/month cost me $10 [yes, $10.00]...
