On the agenda for the Bloomington City Council on Monday is approving an agreement with Health Alliance to cover fire fighters and retirees. Of course it’s on the consent agenda so nobody asks questions. See the NUMEROUS pages beginning on PDF page 87 HERE
Sometimes i have to wonder if way too many pages are included just to confuse the Council and make sure they don’t notice things that are left out.
The City is paying 75% of the premiums regardless of how many kids the employee may have, but other than the cost, very little other information (except legalize) is included.
I really like this statement:
I’d like to know if this plan is more “gold-plated” insurance like all the other City plans – deductibles and co-pays are ridiculously low compared to the private sector. I looked for Exhibit “A”. Here’s it is:
Evidently it’s a secret!
Maybe Alderman Fruin will ask, he seems to be the only one who cares that taxpayers are forced to pay for coverage they will never have.
I wonder what happened when Tari Renner asked people to send him their coverage summaries months ago?
That discussion, like every other discussion on cuts, is Gone With The Wind.
Elections have consequences! Happy empty wallet.
