houston hospital rn benefits question

  1. Hi everyone, Im planning to move to Houston,Tx but im just wondering if there are hospitals that covers 100% of enployee's medical including spouse and children. I dont want to pay a premium every month. I am currently employed in CA and i dont pay monthly premium for health insurance as my employer covers me and my family 100%. Is there such hospital that does that in houston?

    I know for sure Memorial Hermann and Houston Methodist require a monthly contribution to medical / dental insurance. Maybe MD anderson or the public Harris county system pays 100%, not sure

    There aren't any Houston hospitals that cover 100% of medical insurance. The hospital that comes close is MD Anderson, but they only cover health insurance for the employee, not family.

    I believe it's about $250 a month.

    As Mofo said, there are no hospital systems that cover 100% healthcare costs. Probably not many businesses in the country that do that anymore.

    One thing you need to remember, the cost of living is a lot cheaper in Texas, so even though you will probably be making less per hour than in Cali, you will have more "free" cash, and paying for health coverage will not be a big impact.

    at the moment i am not paying any deductibles on my current employer.. I only pay co pay which is less than $5 per visit and my family is 100% covered. I checked UTMB and i have to pay $500 for the whole family per month
