Final note on Brothers Keeper

$125,000 is a lot of money for a medical event! In most cases medical facilities give 40-70% discount if you are self-pay, especially non-profit hospitals and many other medical facilities.


Medical facilities boost up pricing because most people have insurance, and insurance companies only pay about 40% of what a medical facility bills out. The rest is written off. Therefor regular pricing is jacked up big time and when you are self-pay they are happy to reduce your bill, big time!

So it's not unheard of that if your medical bills add up to $200,000 they are reduced to 50% - 60%. In that case you are still within your covered amount without Brother's Keeper. Personally I did select Brother's Keeper as it is such an inexpensive option for so much more coverage (unlimited with the Gold plan). 

Brother's Keeper is a low cost add-on option. When combined with the Gold plan gives you an unlimited coverage amount for a medical incident.
