Medical Benefits

Pacific is pleased to offer access to affordable, high-quality health care benefits for Faculty, Staff and their dependents. The five Health Plan options include High Deductible plans with much lower or no-cost premium options and Health Savings Accounts (HSA's) that allow you to save for the future.

Things to keep in mind when selecting a medical plan:

  • Where do you typically receive care and are those providers/hospitals part of a plan's network;
  • Do you need a plan that allows access to non-network providers;
  • What are the co-payments and deductibles;
  • How much will it cost per month from my paycheck;
  • Do I want access to a Health Savings Account (HSA) as part of my strategy for saving for healthcare in retirement.
