Boston Consulting Group

When evaluating an offer’s health insurance plan, what are the elements to be considered? Monthly premium pulled from my paycheck, annual deductible or copay. Is there anything else to keep in mind? As much description as possible is helpful as I’m very early in my career and BCG had a very simple $5 copay on everything in network policy.
