    The best thing is the cost. I did the employee wellness program and got a 50% discount off of my health insurance cost overall.

    Very, very affordable HMO option. The PPO choice is almost 4.5x more expensive but you get more choices for your doctors, and expanded provider network.

    Health Insurance is rather expensive considering you are a health care employee working for a huge company. High deductibles and you are tied into using Geisinger facilities and physicians for all your health care needs weather you want to or not.

    Difficult to go outside Geisinger Health System for care.

    For employees of a health care facility with it's own insurance plan, it's overpriced

    The care itself at clinics and most of the hospitals is excellent. The insurance is a comprehensive plan and is competitive with others on the market but can be difficult to handle costs for some services, much like other insurance providers.

    Still low cost compared to many other places in the region. In 2018 a $100/ surcharge for spouses will be applied for spouses who go on your plan but have other options. Seems to be an industry trend.

    The co-pays were in-expensive and there were a lot of dr's to pick from.

    It's a health system, they should offer a superior plan and they do. It's their own, of course (Geisinger Health Plan) and the benefits are pretty extensive. They also offer a wellness program that if you qualify, can reduce your portion of the annual premiums.
