So I know everyone is tightening belts with this economy and everything. I found out yesterday our district health benefits are changing. We have a $400/month increase for one person ( I can't imagine what it will be for families). We have to choose between 2 sets of medical systems (the doctors I've been going to for 10 years are in neither choice). If you go to a different doctor or to an urgent care center, it's completely out of pocket. Oh and they are doing this disease mangement part-if you are taking medication for diabetes, high cholesterol/blood pressure you are required to enroll in their program and follow their guidelines or pay a 5% increase in premiums (including and added 5% of the employer part of the premiums)! This really scares me-that's about $5,000 more each year I'm going to have to try and find somewhere-I don't have it. My friend is married to another teacher-that's $10,000 for them per year. Not to mention you pay more every time you go to the doctor, higher deductibles, etc. The deductibles are over $2500, co-pay for prescriptions is $70. 25% of emergency services. I really wish we had better unions here. This is just unbelievable to me.
