Hey Guys,

I am gunning to become a Houston Police Officer, but I had a question for all the current cops. How good is your health care? I know it is subsidized by the city of Houston but what does that really mean? What I want to know if you have to go to the dentist how much is your out of pocket for lets say a root canal? What about when you go to the ER (non job related) how much would your deductible be?

Thank you so much,

Zoki.

i bet like most plans out there. ER visit there will be like $100 copay and then maybe 80/20. some stuff 100%. dentists most likely 70/30. i don't imagine they have the best of the best but its good coverage.

Dental and vision suck balls, put it that way. Regular medical isn't too bad... still pay $450 a month for me, wife, 2 kids...

Union membership gets you reimbursed 50% on all copays, up to $1000 a year per dependent. OP, PM me if you want more details.

Honestly I don't even know how much I pay, but it isn't much. No complaints on any of the insurance plans, either med or dental.

havent been to a dentist yet so I can't comment on that. I believe health care is decent. I had emergency operation ($37,000) only paid $500

Yeah, County Insurance sucks balls too! Our medical is through Aetna and it's decent but Dental really sucks. We use some safeguard crap.

Was this during working hour or personal? I am curious if the city should pay for you if anything happen while you on the clock.

If anything happens to you on duty and is related to the job itself then the city pretty much covers everything. If you have a heart attack or something then its up to you to cover your deductibles.

But between the three unions that I'm a member of and the cancer insurance, accident insurance and all the other stuff that's made available to you I'm making more money being sick and in the hospital than i am when i'm at work.
