    I have an HSA that allows me to put money toward health expenses before my high deductible is met. Penn State makes a contribution a yearly contribution for individuals and family. I can choose to make monthly contributions in addition. However, my yearly contribution is capped; any remaining balance at the end of a tax year will roll over indefinitely, as long as you're still an employee.

    Covers nearly everything. Some copays and deductibles, but better than many other company plans. Lots of choices for individual and families alike.

    Very good insurance with low deductible/copays. Mental health benefits are top-notch, which is sadly a must for grad students.

    You can go to the student health center for free, at anytime.

    Does cover a lot of benefits when compared to the other schools. But the location does not really have the best medical facilities.

    The Health Savings Account provided by the University to help pay claims and the savings plan, which allows relatively healthy people to save a lot on their premiums by having a high deductible.

    It is getting more costly every year and wages are not keeping pace with inflation. Vacation time is adequate but we don't get many Federal holidays off.
