I continue to become enraged with Nursing's declining Healthcare coverage at increasing costs..I am wondering if this is a regional (Greater Cleveland) problem, or are more of you taking a trip to the proctologist with crummy healthcare for yourself..I just started with a new employer..LTC.. family owned..has several facilities...The Employer will pay for a nurse... real basic 80/20 $1000 deductable and No prescription..The same plan if you have even 1 child or a spouse is $70 a pay..To get decent family plan is a staggering $170 a pay ( every 2 weeks) and that one you still have co pays and $20 scripts...Now other people I talk to , NOT in healthcare, seem to come up with a good coverage and dental and vision Family Plan for $30-$40 a pay...They do not work for Gigantic employers..less total employees than this company has and seem to get good healthcare for less..Does anyone else seem to be having this problem??? Do any of you know why or how this is occuring. ...And the Big Question...What do I do to remedy it..A Group Policy for all nurses in the country sure would be sweet..No Insurance Companies Out there want to write some policies for a couple of million people
????Tell me what you know ...Thanks!!!!
