    High deductible, low pay check premium

    I love it. It was very cheap for me, and the coverage went a long way. I had very small deductible and little to no copay at certain places.

    Bad, just plain cheap and bad. For a health company we have bad insurance.

    Too expensive, too complicated. A full-time employee can't afford the average deductible.

    way to expensive now. their packages don't cover any thing and are outrageously priced.

    The higher plans were obviously better. All plans were rather pricey.

    You get to choose your level of coverage. If you have issues you can pay just a little more and get pretty good coverage

    Straight-up, laughably, bad. You supposedly get a "credit" to help you purchase insurance on a corporate exchange. Oddly, even with this supposed credit, the cost to you is still about the same as buying it on the open market. Want to know how much your insurance will cost, just browse the plans at BCBS of illinois, or Aetna, or United Health care. Their private, individual insurance is about the same as what you'll pay as a Walgreens employee.
