I just got informed by my employer we got bought out last September...  Very quietly, we as employees were not informed..  It was told to us last week.  

Now we just got informed we have a week from yesterday to sign up for new HealthCrap plans.

More under the Orange Fleur-de-lis...

What I pay now for UHC is $285/wk for a $4000 deductible family plan

What plans I have to choose from:
    UHC: #388/wk 1500 deductible family plan (80/20)
    UHC/HSA: $353/wk, 4000 deductible family plan (100% after meeting deductible)
    UHC/HSA: $327/wk, 6000 deductible family plan (100% after meeting deductible)

Folks what am I to do...  I love my job, I love the people I work around, but I am at end of my rope with this HC coverage costs.  It has gone up every year and the plans have been getting worse.  At my age, I cannot go without.  I am now in the position that several others on this site - I work for my HC insurance.  I am still paying off the doctors for this past year in attempting to get my deductible met.  And now to help pay for this additional outrage, I have to work now more overtime - this will cause more stress, unhealthy eating, lack of sleep, no family time, no relaxing time... (I already don't take vacations (not provided) or sick time (also not provided)).  

What I hate is getting screwed like this year after year and not seeing any benefit from it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
