    This company has great benefits.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Account Manager in Schaumburg, Illinois

    The 401k match is pretty good with UHG. Overall, I think the medical plans are terrible but this is coming from the perspective of working for the actual health insurer. The employee contribution is way to much.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Case Manager in Des Moines, Iowa

    Definitely not the greatest medical coverage I think a health care company should offer but does offer incentives to make personal healthy lifestyle choices.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Clinical Administrative Coordinator in Madison, Wisconsin

    Wide range of health insurance plans to choose from allowing you to decide how much you want to pay for premiums based on what you want to have for your deductible. Offer dental, vision and other health benefits as well. Life insurance is provided but you can purchase additional amounts at a very good rate.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Health Advisor in Kingston, New York State

    The medical benefits are absolutely horrible.

  • Sep 05, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Former IT Consultant in Columbia, Maryland

    Good health benefits. Not so good education assistance which you have to pay back if you leave within 2 years.

  • Sep 12, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Minneapolis, Minnesota

    The benefits package is very costly and the coverage is horrible. You might as well be a self-pay.

  • Sep 02, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Tampa, Florida

    PTO, paid holidays, and 401k were great benefits. All other benefits they need to reconsider. To work for a insurance company and have terrible insurance is a disgrace.
