I start at the PTO June 12th.  Can any current or former employees recommend the best health care plan(s) to choose?  Thank you!

I'm a federal employee but don't work for the USPTO.  I assume they have the same plans we have.  I switched from blue cross to MDPIA recently because it's cheaper and includes dental coverage.  Most of the plans don't include dental.

You really have to assess your own health issues such as dental, vision care, ob/gyn, etc.   I seem to recall that we had access to a website that let you do a side by side comparision of at least 4 plans with summaries of the important issues of coverage and price.   The answer might even vary with where you end up living and what kind of facilities/doctors exist for your plan.

I got an offer from USPTO!!!  I am excited about moving to a different place and starting a new job.  I just hope it won't be as stressful as mentioned in several posts.  After all, there's the 8 months training period, which should be plenty of time to adust (I think).
