Thread: Health Insurance Increases for 2018

  1. #1

    Question Health Insurance Increases for 2018

    Open enrollment for 2018 doesn't begin until Nov 1st. So when does everyone think we'll start seeing the letters from our insurance providers outlining the increases for next year?

    Our insurance runs from 1 Aug to 31 July.

    This year they changed to a new insurance. I just started this job in February. So I had one insurance in Jan/Feb. Switched jobs and started a new insurance in March, then they changed insurance companies on 1 Aug. So I've had my insurance increase in cost 3 times in 7 months. Significant increases each time. The cost for insurance is outrageous.

    Just had my open enrollment. Luckily no changes for the 3rd year in a row.

    Lucky to be working for a company that can absorb all the increases.

    Recently changed companies and for the first time in years my costs went down... But the insurance changed from a preventative coverage and low deductible to no coverage until high deductible met.

    Basically back to catastrophic care policy with Rx discounts.

    We're hiring too; we need electronics technicians badly...and it's even tougher to recruit when we don't offer a hugely generous benefit package..one that includes health insurance.

    Have you reached out to CSM? I'm about done my Electronics Engineering Tech degree and there's a handful of folks in my class who would possibly be interested.
