Lots of great providers near campus.
expensive, but with choice of coverage
The plan was good, but the premium was higher than I've seen elsewhere.
It is reasonable for what it is
Comprehensive coverage and very affordable.
This is the US, so Columbia's premiums of course go up each year even though they're subsidized. They do a good job pro-rating the monthly premiums based on your income level. I wish they would do a better job negotiating for lower prices for basic doctor's visits -- there's a "Columbia Doctors" practice that charges even Columbia employees an arm and a leg. The push is always on the High-Deductible Plan, which of course just means that you try to never go to the doctor at all costs...
Low payment each month. Good insurance policy.
It's costly, but the insurance is good.
NYU Medical out of network
Is a good health care plan
