Buyer beware: you'd think that a medical center would include it's affiliated inpatient rehab (post-acute) hospital with its insurance coverage, but you'd be wrong. So, if you're in a terrible accident or have a knee replaced, for example, and you have VUMC health ins coverage, after you're discharged from the hospital, you can't go to the next-door IPR for the rest of your recovery. Go figure.
Health insurance is through Aetna.
AETNA accepted everywhere, never had an issue getting an appointment.
The health insurance coverage seems to be comparable to for profit companies the size of Vanderbilt. Employees pay a portion of the premium.
It can be hard to find providers who accept it. Even some Vanderbilt providers won't be able to serve you.
Taken out 2 times a month
Vanderbilt has some of the best healthcare plans on the market, with their own Vanderbilt plan (where you use their services for your network) is very well-priced and exceptional care! Not to mention convenience, to be able to walk or ride their shuttle to your doctor or preventive check-up. No downsides to their plans that haven't affected healthcare in general across the country (prices continuing to rise)
Its fair; not as good as it once was but better than average
Benefits are reduced every year
The benefits are good if you can use them and afford them
