The monthly premium is very reasonable compared to any other company I've worked for in the past.

Current Senior Administrative Assistant Level V in Ithaca, NY, New York State

Medical, Prescription, STD/LTD, Life (self and spouse), you pick level of coverage you want, many supplemental coverages you can opt in for. Dental is automatically provided on the state side, but it's terrible - very few providers in-network in our area.
