Hi! Does anyone here work for the State of Nevada? If so, just curious how their health insurance is and more importantly, what they charge per month for a family 4? I'm interviewing in 2 weeks.


Any input helps a lot. I appreciate your responses.

Thank you.

The other plan, the statewide PPO, is cheaper.

PPO= $260 a month; HMO= $503 a month. If you go PPO your deductible is $3,800 before the plan starts paying 75% of your costs. The State gives you a prefunded health savings account with $1,800-$2,000 to cover any expenses if you go with the PPO plan.

Good luck on the interview; I agree with others have said, State runs lean ,thus don't expect to be overly compensated like the local municipal employees.

My wife works for CCSD. We jettisoned her health plan because it was eating too much of her paycheck. My insurance through the casino is just as good, and doesn't cost me a damned thing. Nothing out of my paycheck, low co-pays, and absolutely free prescriptions for many meds through the culinary pharmacy.

That alone is like adding $10,000 to my base salary.

Default Thank You!!!

Thank you so much for all your responses & great info!! Yeah the health ins. costs seem awful high to me comapred to the cost if one works for a large Casino.

I always thought State & Gov. jobs had low co-pays and very low deductibles.

Someone asked what position- its a Admin assist position. When I started to factor in the cost of insurance for a family at the end of the year I will actually bring in much less then I do now-lol.

Hope all had a very Happy Easter!!

It depends on the state. Arizona has no deductibles and relatively low copays.

It doesn't sound like a good fit for you under the circumstances.
