The health insurance benefit at Genentech seemed pretty standard, compared with other companies in the Bay Area. It included Kaiser, other HMO and PPO, with high-deductible options.
It is one of the top health benefits out there.
Health insurance is through Aetna and through Kaiser Permanente. There is co-pay and at the PPO level, the breakdown is approximately 95% insurance and 5% employee responsibility.
Family additions is relatively less than other companies
Phenomenal. Best health care coverage we've ever had when you factor in Rx plan.
Good health plan options and coverage is good
Comprehensive and very inclusive
Worst: Like many employers, we are experiencing benefits erosion, with incentives to switch to higher deductible plans with higher copays. We probably still have better benefits than most, but not as good as they used to be just a couple of years ago.
it's decent. changes every year as they adjust to save money
Extremely cheap given the awesome level of coverage. Range of coverage options available based on need and cost. Vision and dental coverage available.
