As other have said, it is quite expensive and doesn't cover much compared to other employers I have worked for. A good example is covering only $10 on a $800 bill, this is despite having the top notch. Being someone who has a gut issue, I am put on federal support because Aetna (What they use) does not want to cover it.
Be mindful of what you select and dont believe the hype. They have covered very little in the years I paid them and have always had to be put on federal support to get thr help I need.
Definitely choose the lowest option and work yourself from there if you can.
