    The price paid by employee for the coverage is relatively higher than what I have paid with other companies that were smaller and unrelated to the healthcare industry. The coverages are now standardized under ACA law which allows for better choices. However, the prescription coverage is now totally administered by the various external medical plans instead of by Walgreens. This seems odd for a pharmacy to do with it's own employees unless there really is a significant cost savings not to directly offer prescription services. They still do restrict pharmacy benefits to Walgreens pharmacies only.

    Pretty well rounded and good value but there are better options at other employers

    Not the best but also not the worst.

    All the plans are expensive and the price jumps (doubled this year).

    They have many plans one of which is awesome just way to expensive. The affordable plans have huge deductibles

    Last year was the first year we used a private exchange to pick our health insurance plans, and the plan I chose worked out well. Unfortunately, prices went up and I had to switch plans this year. Walgreens does a decent job of subsidizing the health care insurance. My friends and family tell me my insurance benefits and costs are better than theirs.

    Walgreens offers health care benefits, but tries their hardest not to give them to you. Very few employees are treated as full time employees and therefore very few employees have benefits.

    They do offer multiple plans on the health exchange, however most of the affordable ones are high deductible now.
