I’m starting a new role soon and have two options for company health insurance:
- Keep my current health insurance and the employer will pay for it.
- Join the employer’s aggregate health insurance plan which they will also pay for.
My assumption is that I will be taxed on both these benefits equally so should just pick whichever is cheaper. Am I missing any perks of being on an employer’s plan? Before this I was at a start-up who did not offer an aggregate plan.
Also now that I am 25 it looks like the good days are over and I will have to go from from CHF160/month to CHF320 !
