    Hi Suzanne,

    I think that I was kind of thinking of benefits as insurance- thanks to you and some of the other girls I realize now that I WANT benefits after all!! I realize now its alot more than just insurance - thanks for your help.

    Orchid,
    Are you wanting the "no benefits" because of not wanting insurance?
    There is a big difference between the two. "No benefits" means no vacation pay, no sick pay if you have to call in, no disability insurance, if there is a tuition benefit you wouldn't be able to get that either. Medical insurance cna usually be taken or refused..........remember that you are paying the largest part of the insurance, not the hospital.............

    Hope that this attempts to clear up some misconceptions................

    Glad everything is cleared up! When you go through orientation and registration at the hospital, they'll sit with you and explain all the benefits. At that point all you have to do is say that your husband carries the insurance and that's that.
