"Regarding the post concerning the health benefit meeting: Well, it was pretty sad. I can say without hesitation that Mercer Healthcare - who put together this poo - didn't really come that prepared. Also, someone from the audience pointed out that the handouts did not contain the full info regarding deductibles.Makes us worried that we will loose even more of our benefits when open enrollment comes around. Rumor has it, our retirees, or at least those 65 and over, will see an increase in their health insurance premiums by as much a 6%. Sounds as if Benita Ransom suddenly realized she has screwed everybody but our retirees. Now it's their time.
I for one came out of there feeling like the Finance Department and Mercer were playing some sort of shell game. It was made clear that we would not get the full story until open enrollment.
Plus - retiree information for people over 65 was not made available...makes you wonder what is going to happen to this group."
Nothing like rewarding loyalty and dedication, huh?
