Will The Unvaccinated Pay More for Health Insurance? (Video)


In recent weeks, there have been talks to charge the unvaccinated more for life and health insurance, as a way to encourage people to get vaccinated.

In this video, I'll discuss whether or not insurance companies can do that and if there should be other incentives to reward those who chose to be vaccinated.

How Much Do Health Unit Coordinators Make?

Pay depends on what region of the country you are in. When I was a Health Unit Coordinator in Memphis, Tennessee, more than 10 years ago, the starting base salary was under $10, but it did include shift and weekend differential. Where I am now in South Florida, and with the years of experience that I have, my starting salary was much higher.

A simple Google search reveals that the average Health Unit Coordinator salary on the low end is $23,000 and on the high end is $29,000 per year.

If you are fresh off of the street with no medical background, but you do have a computer and/or office skills, then your pay will be totally different than someone who has experience as a Health Unit Coordinator who can also read EKG strips.

If you are in the market for a new job, then I would suggest that you check out, type in a hospital's name, and see what current and past employees are saying about the salary there.
