GWUFA has analyzed the benefits compensation for faculty at GW compared with other universities. In short, our benefits continue to lag behind the benefits at institutions similar to GW in locations with a similar cost of living including Boston University, Northeastern University, American University, and the University of Miami.
The conclusion: For an employee who only insures herself and rarely goes to the doctor, GW’s premiums compensate for its high deductibles and co-pays. But for every other group—employees who need to insure other family members, employees who are older and typically utilize the health care system more than the young, employees who have small children, and those who for some other reason go to doctors fairly frequently—GW’s health insurance plans are not competitive with comparable schools.
