The Blue Cross Plan for non teaching members enrolled in the plan have voiced concerns that they are paying a greater share than the teacher members in the plan. What are the facts?
Teacher: November 2001 January 2001 %
Family/month $64.95 $57.95 +12.1%
Single/month $21.20 $18.75 +13.1%
Since November 1996, the family rate for teachers has increased by 97%.
Non-teacher November 2001 January 2001 %
Family/month $58.25 $50.50 +15.3%
Single/month $21.20 $18.45 +14.9%
Since November 1996, the family rate for non-teachers has increased by 207%.
It appears that from the statistics provided by MASBO that teachers actually pay $6.70 more a month than non teachers when comparing family contributions. When comparing single contributions to the plan teachers and non teachers are paying the same rate as of November 2001.
