Taxpayers Might Have To Pay For Health Insurance Standoff

by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

State employees with  Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield health insurance might be spared the hardship of higher rates at Connecticut Children\’s Medical Center that thousands of others are facing as a result of a contract standoff.

That\’s because they have a powerful ally fighting to spare them from paying higher out-of-network rates resulting from the breakdown between the insurer and the hospital: the office of the state Comptroller.  But it\’s possible that Connecticut taxpayers could end up paying the difference.

    Of course, what else. Hosed again. Why should state workers not have to shoulder the same pains of increasing healthcare costs that the rest of us do? Not only do I have to pay for my own increased costs, I have to pay so the state workers can get there Rolls Royce medical plan. Legislature time to give us taxpayers a break.

    Hopefully the rest of us can throw out this
    Legislature in the next election. This will be the first this registered democrat will vote straight republican in the the next Connecticut election (at the state level).
