Your age and pre-existing conditions would be a factor. Also it depends upon what type of coverage you are going for, how much the copays are for each visit to the doctor and for medicine, for example. That said, it does seem quite high and few people would be expected to afford that. I have Aetna stock and would hope their rates are more competitive.
Age and Pre-existing plays NO part.
That is the Aetna NY QPOS rate for EVERYONE.
