    It costs too much and I don't think our company puts enough $ into our HSA Medical accounts. Even if the company increased contributions by a couple hundred $ for each employee, that would make a huge difference!

    Too expensive in my opinion and another reason why I'm actively searching for a different job. My hope is to find another job where the health insurance is much more affordable than what's offered in this company

    Zero stars or maybe a half star would be a more appropriate rating for the health insurance plan options offered through The Village for families and children because I feel like this agency should have definitely offered lower premiums or helped out a lot more with contributions to funding their staff's health savings accounts. Instead of wasting lots of money on unimportant things like parties or bloated administrative salaries or lots of the unnecessary expenses like upkeep of their premises and infrastructure, I feel like this agency should have allocated more money toward helping their staff pay for healthcare insurance which is affordable.

    High Deductible Health plans: these do not work for everybody so the advice is to make it optional. Half of the staff might want high deductible plans but other staff might want alternative forms of medical coverage which do not require such high out of pocket expense before full benefits kick

    Please make it more cost effective! People have other household expenses, and the health insurance premiums should not deplete your entire budget for the whole month!

    Zero is what I should mark, lol. Seriously, the insurance was way too expensive. The Village is a very large organization funded with so many different types of endowments and grants. Most of the money seems to be wasted frivolously and foolishly on trying to maintain image, instead of funding more competitive benefits.

    Here is the reason for my 1 star rating on the previous screen, because of the expensive health insurance coverage. For an agency as large as The Village in Hartford was, I expected much higher employer contributions to our HSA accounts.

    Expenisve! Expensive! Expensive! Part time staff should pay less, not more for insurance!

    Health insurance coverage was not very good especially for part-timers. Part timesr had to pay more for their insurance which doesn't make any sense because they received less hours in their pay check to pay fo the expensive insurance.

    Biweekly premiums for the health insurance are not affordable, they do not negotiate very competitively for their insurance contracts with the health insurance companies from what I can see.
