VERY Healthy Health Insurance

Some health insurance coverage is more equal than others:

In Germantown... Superintendent Victor Rossetti's contract was set to expire at the end of this school year. But the School Board decided to give him early retirement benefits for which he had not qualified.

That happens to include the following:

Health insurance: $36,852

which is:

the full cost of his health insurance premiums for two years.

Eighteen thousand, four hundred twenty-six dollars per YEAR!

In comparison, the family plan provided by a very large local employer (union shop) costs just over $12K/year. The plan has a $1K HSA and stop-loss deductible of $3K/family.

Who the Hell is negotiating the Germantown schools' package?

And why are they still employed as a "negotiator"?

That number is not all that different than what you will find in other school districts. Waukesha isn't that much different.

Wiggy--makes no difference if EVERY school district had that program.

It's highway robbery of the taxpayer.

BTW, Elmbrook's is closer to the comparo union-shop example I posted.
