Pretty standard for a public university. no bells or whistles
Easy access to vision, dental and healthcare.
Lots of coverage options, from minimal to PPOs. Reasonable costs and minimal co-pays. FSA program is very helpful.
The available health plans change from time to time, which can be inconvenient when your physician isn't in network if you're in an HMO. If you're not in an HMO, the out-of-pocket costs can be high.
The health benefits were great. The student clinics were very professional and clean. Practitioners were knowledgeable and open-minded
The health insurance covers most things, but sometimes the deductibles are high compared to other plans.
Low priced and good coverage
Really great insurance options with some of the best family leave for postdocs (though it's not great)
Health insurance is affordable. I had Kaiser and it was great.
Lots of options and different prices. Even pet insurance!
