For the employee, we reimburse 100% of a Gold medical plan, along with dental and vision coverage. We do this via Gusto's small group health insurance plan. The insurer made available through the plan is currently Anthem / Blue Cross for Medical, and Guardian for Dental / Vision.
In addition, we cover 60% of the same coverage (Gold medical plan + dental / vision) for dependents.
In our experience, this is above-market for an early stage company (most mid-stage companies do 100% + 50%, and only late-stage / public companies with 1,000+ employees cover a higher percentage). We want our people to be happy and healthy 🙂. We'll continue to make benefits more generous as we grow and mature as a company, as well.
We offer three group health care plans through Anthem / Blue Cross.

Your company contributes separately to employees' and dependents' premiums.
For dental and vision, we use Guardian 1500 with Child Ortho (UCR) and Guardian 20/20/150, 12/24. For additional details and signup instructions, see the attached pdf below.
