    Not eligible for health care until after 60 days or a full month of full-time. Then, it's subsidized weekly based on hours at $2.70/hour, so may change with the week. This makes accounting/seeing what comes and goes in your overall paycheck very nebulous. Ineligible if you fall at or below 20 hours. Even the best coverage (Cigna PPO) is minimal. Especially pharmaceutical, which is under a separate deductible. There are many exceptions and frequent denials. You lose health care the week your assignment is over.
