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.
Medicare for all, now and forever.
