Many providers opted out due to hassles of dealing with the insurance. Company managed to shift more administrative tasks as well as more of the cost onto the employee, so it was often more cost effective to pay for things without using the insurance. Many employees experienced crippling costs for prescriptions as well.
They have good prescription coverage
Huge deductible, lots of red tape with HCP (United Healthcare). Typical crappy big company insurance.
again if you have any question you can call the benefit center and theyll help you. no worst thing because you have insurance ... think abt how many people who do not have insurance
A lot of people complain about this (there's a PPO plan and a high-deductible plan) but it's consistent with most companies.
The amount of coverage , deductible , costs have always made GE a great place to work while receiving the health insurance family's need with today's high health care costs!
i have never in my life worked for a company that shows billions of dollars in profits each year and want the employees to have such high deductibles and say they cant afford them
Increasingly expensive (whose isn't). Options for High/Med/Low premiums - offset for high/med/low deductibles / out of pocket, allow for variety of health status. Young/healthy can pay less in premiums, but would pay more when medical services are used. Older/ less healthy people (for instance, with chronic conditions) can opt to pay higher premiums, but have lower deductibles/ out of pocket. Vision and Dental add-ons are available. FSAs / HSAs available for those enrolled.
you pay for every office visit
Lots of flexibility. Getting worse by the year.
