Teacher Health Insurance: Sweet, Sweet, Deal

Noted in the middle of a story on Muskego-Norway's health insurance coverage:

The district will continue to pay employees 87.4 percent of the premium for single coverage if they take insurance from the employer of a working spouse. That will come to about $6,900 next year.

Meaning that the full cost of single coverage at M-N would be around $8,000.00

As for the rest of us?

Average single-coverage premium was about $5,000.00 in 2010 in a non-union shop.  Even adding a very generous 10% hike (2011) and another 10% hike (2012), it's still just $6,050.

M-N teachers should take the deal without blinking.

Women have higher health care expenses, and in a group health plan with a disproportionate number of women, the member premium will reflect that.
