My family medical insurance (Aetna PPO) has annual premiums of roughly 24k. My employer pays about 18k of that amount. I've been with the same company for 8 yrs and starting to look at other opportunities with the Houston economy doing so well at the moment. I can find openings with higher salary but the medical coverage (especially employer paid portion) seems to typically not be available until job offer stage. If anyone has a link with averages (specifically oil & gas if possible) or examples of your own coverage, I would appreciate for comparison purposes. I just came across one opening with a much higher salary but with a note of "employer subsidized health coverage of up to 2,500). Assuming that means an overall negative impact of 21,500 to my current situation (assuming overall cost is the same although I realize it can vary quite a bit).
