As I mentioned, mine went up 40 percent

This is the first in a gradual 5 year increase that was negotiated by our union. I work for the 29th largest school district in the country. My insurance was already better than many so I cannot imagine that much needed changing. We already covered maternity and mental health. They increased the dependent age to 26 two years ago.

The changes also mean that my insurance company wants all meds filled through the mail because it is cheaper for them. It also means that they are cutting costs in other ways. I rake Advair for asthma and it will no longer be covered.

A good healthcare plan should not only be good for some people and that is what we are seeing.
