    It's good and pretty accessible, but the copay is 25$ for off campus appointments which adds up if you use the service regularly

    The best thing is the cost and coverage. The worst thing was the retirement age healthcare benefit should be fewer years of service. Start there when you are 65 if you ever want to see it.

    Great health insurance, but if you use SHC beware that it will take months to see your general practitioner. I oftentimes just end up using express care for my appointments, otherwise I would have to wait half a year to see my doctor. There are other health plans though, like Blue Shield, Kaiser, PPO etc
