$2,250 Single and $4,500
family.

Plan costs go up for deductible
Previously the deductible was
$2,000 for the individual with a
$1,000 deductible net of board
contribution
The new deductible is now
$2,250 with no Board
contribution.


The deductible goes from 16%
to 5%
With a family rate expected to
be at $27,000 in year two that
is worth $3,000 to each family
more than offsetting the $2,250
in additional cost
If you use up your deductible in
the first two months the Board
will provide an interest free
loan to help you offset the cost



Your drug costs are likely to
increase as the $5/$20/$35
copays will apply to many more
drugs
If plan costs exceed $10,200 for
individual or $27,500 for family
(assuming law stays the same)
the plan will be renegotiated in
2017
