    HighMark is terrible. Premiums/packages are not bad, but the insurance itself is terrible. Good luck finding good doctors in the area.

    The health insurance is the best I have had when compared to previous jobs. There is a copay for doctor visits but it is not a lot. All annuals are covered 100%.

    Good health insurance for family members.

    The benefits keep decreasing each year and the deductibles have been increasing and or doubling each year. Penn State is self-insured and seems to be trying to find ways to bump up against privacy concerns by asking for personal health information before providing various health-care options.

    The best thing about the health insurance is that it doesn't increase the years there are no raises. The worst thing is that the year you get the 1% raise, your insurance goes up more than the raise (if you have a family plan), so you are effectively demoted.

    There is a health center for students. Most of the visit and medication are covered by health insurance for graduate assistants.

    The deductible is so high that I end up paying more than when I was on an exchange plan.

    The best thing about the insurance at Penn State is the low premium and the vast selection of Dr.'s you are able to visit.
