Draper recently switched to Blue Cross Blue Shield HMO (2 years ago). BCBS is much more restrictive on what prescription meds they will cover. Previously they had Harvard Pilgrim which I believe was better (covered more) just based on my own personal experience ( i have no major data).

The best thing about the healthcare plan is the level of coverage.

Insurance offerings are limited, and out-of-pocket monthly costs are higher than other companies I've worked at. Only one package (a special type of HMO which is restrictive and has high co-pays and/or deductible limits) comes with the HRA, but any other does not.

Harvard Pilgrim (one of the best in the nation) with fairly low deductible.

I liked the access to top care that their plans gave me and my family.

Regular HMO and high-deductible HMO are offered. The deductible is partly subsidized; but, the processing of claims in this plan is messy. Access to MIT Medical Department is getting diluted. Premiums for those working outside Cambridge are expensive.

The health insurance is a little expensive but covers everything. Based out of MA so sometimes there are hoops to jump through when using it out of state.
