    The good "PPO" health plan was removed, so employees are forced to choose between a terrible anti-human HMO (where the insurance company denies treatment routines to save a few $$) and a savings account plan where there is no insurance coverage until hitting a high deductible. Company actively working to reduce health care benefits, instead of improving them over time. Very anti-employee and anti-health.

    I don't think any other companies can beat MS's health insurance.

    Before Obama Care, Microsoft has the best insurance, period. You paid nothing out of pocket. Now, it's slightly worse but is still very good. You pay up to the annual out-of-pocket maximum which is just a couple thousand per year.

    The best thing is there are $200/month to cover more expenses. The worst thing is the deductibles is a little high.
