At last Monday’s council meeting the City looked at changing health insurance benefits for employees. Alderman Jim Fruin mentioned the City coverage should be compared to the private sector to see if City benefits are “gold-plated”.
The plan for just my husband and myself (through his employer) changed as of July 1st. For just medical, $260.25 is taken out of his check every two weeks. How much do City employees pay?
The complete plan is outlined below. Primary Care office visits are $40, they used to be $20. The killer is Specialty Care – $65 every time you walk in the office. For chronic problems that adds up fast.
Jim: Let’s hear how City coverage compares.
I’d love to hear about readers plans too. (click to enlarge)
