    Due to the Affordable Care Act, many companies health plans are similar - but this one is in a upper tier however it does come with cost to employee.

    Premium keeps increasing, and have to pay more out of pocket than we used to. HMOs not offered anymore.

    No longer offers HMO option. Only PPO options are available with the best coverage being an 80/20. As a parent with small children, this can rack up substantial costs. Maternity care alone from childbirth cost thousands out of pocket.
