I've known BCGers that have done invitro fertilization for $5 on the plan. Basically anything is $5. @BCG3 is correct, though I've never run into a scenario where the price difference was excessive.

Almost no limits on expenses (would often do st Regis), healthcare is $0 premium, $5 copay

Do other people have a limit on snacks? That would seriously put a cramp in my teams’s Whole Foods habits

Put it this way OP -- when others post on FBI asking "are we allowed to do X" I'm always confused. Expense policy at BCG basically boils down to "don't steal from the firm."

All of that seems pretty standard. What I'm really impressed by is the MBB that gets to book business. Isn't that BCG?

I had a vasectomy 10 years ago. Remarried and decided to have another kid. Total cost, $10 ($5 for me and $5 for my wife) and required surgery for me, IVF for my wife. No deductible on our health care plan.

How do I post on FBI? Sounds legit.

@BCG1, what’s your daily spend limit on food/ snacks, etc?

Yeah that's awesome

Lol @ “price difference to coach not excessive”.... I’m really curious - what would actually get flagged as “excessive”?

I pretty much subsist on snacks

Those health benefits sound pretty good. Do you guys flat fee your expenses within contracts? Or is it actuals where you report back to the client?

^ hardly ever actuals
