It is health insurance that state employees receive. I didn't use the health insurance but many people I worked with liked it and used it.
Going up in cost year over year. Seems to be par for the course, no worse than overall trajectory.
The health insurance is just a basic one
Coverage is pretty good overall, however it depends on which plan you choose during enrollment. Premiums are also relatively low compared to private sector, but have been increasing due to State budget issues.
It is great. It covers dental and some other stuffs. I like it a lot.
The State Employee Health Plan has pretty decent coverage. If you select the high-deductible plan with the health savings account, the state contributes enough to your HSA every year to almost cover your deductible, which makes it somewhat affordable.
Most providers accept Blue Cross and Blue Shield, which is one of the insurance choices.
I like the employer contribution to the HSA. $1500 (2016) is deposited by KSU in two lump sums per year. The deductible is $2700, so with a fairly low pre-tax auto deposit, you can have your deductible tucked away in case you need it. If not, that money is still yours until you spend it off.
there aren't any health insurance benefits for this job
Have to paid the health insurance by yourself with some reduction.
