Health benefits difference between Microsoft and Uber

Anyone has been in both companies can comment? Looks like for Microsoft you pay nothing from paycheck and receive 2.5K for your 3.75K deductible if you have family. For Uber you need to pay 200+ each paycheck and no money given for deductible? Any gotchas in health benefits moving from Microsoft to Uber?

    Uber RSUs will be worth millions of dollars someday(as per Uber recruiters) in the future and you are complaining about $200?

      Lol. The recruiter told me my offer with number of shares. When asked how much per share she has to call me and say she is not allowed to say the price on email.

      Apparently they know the valuation they quote me is inflated and don't want to get in trouble.

      Recruiter told me the price. I know that’s the preferred stock price. I also know there is a 409a commob stock price. I’m not complaining. I’m asking.

    Uber health insurance is incredible imo, best I've ever seen, anywhere. My plan has $0 yearly deductible and 0% coinsurance and is less than $200/mo for a family

    The monthly Uber credits cover more than enough of the insurance premium difference

      You will. I didn’t for the first 1-2 months and then I found it greatly simplified my life and bought me free time and flexibility.

      I usually finish them before the 10th of the month with Uber Eats. You also have 17% discount on everything related to Uber
