    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 insurance covers most things, but sometimes the deductibles are high compared to other plans.
