Seagate employees are eligible for optional medical coverage.
Flexible however out of pocket is more than expected.
While the health insurance cost has increased over the years, it is still relatively low due to Seagate's insurance pool being so large. Overall not bad, but it was much better before.
Seagate only offers High Deductible health care plan. I never felt I was limited in terms of getting proper healthcare, dental care and vision care. I have been happy with health insurance coverage.
A couple of decent options. They do contribute to your HSA at the start of the year, which is nice.
Pro: The employee portion of the premium is relatively low. Con: Insurance company is very difficult to work with on diagnostic approvals.
Low deductible plans with min coverage.
average coverage, not good and not bad.
Seagate "had" United Health Care and felt it was great. Seagate then switched to Cigna, and that took some getting used to, as Cigna's first response to claims is always denial. Over time, health care with Cigna settled down and found health care through Cigna, and coverage's to be very good.
High deductible options have HSA accounts with them where the company contributes $600 (employee)/$1,200 (family) per year.
Cigna PPO option in coverage is awesome
