Good options. Reasonable premiums. Comparable to corporate jobs.
Vision coverage is minimal and approved locations are confusing given the fact that you can't go to the UW clinic for most care even though it's on site...
There are numerous health insurance options offered through the benefits plan. Some are extremely comprehensive, others are more streamlined, with corresponding premiums and copayments. Good to have so many options, although it could be confusing for the uninitiated.
If you live in Seattle using UW's Kaiser option is pretty convenient in my opinion. Not too pricey, low deductible and it's obvious where you should go for any treatment.
The health insurance offers numerous plans and all are very reasonably priced, Even for vert large families.
Several plans to choose from with free dental, be careful of the plan you pick, some of them are crap.
Reasonable cost, love that dental is free.
Could be much better - the UW Medicine side of things is mediocre at best - difficult to get appointments in a timely manner, high copays, etc
Several options, and much lower cost than other local employers
It's an ok package, nut nothing extra.
