St. Paul Teachers Vote Against Statewide Health Plan

Posted by admin
Filed under Health Insurance | 1 Comment

The St. Paul Teacher’s Union recently voted not to accept a statewide health plan instead of their current district sponsored plan. While the new plan would have offered lower premiums and saved the district money, teachers found issue with the new plan not covering older children, ages 19 to 25, who were not enrolled in school, and they would also lose the benefits of belonging to a health club. Many disagree with this decision, stating that older children should only remain under their parent’s plan if they are enrolled in school, and therefore still a dependent. People in support of the new statewide plan are angry that this is largely why the proposal failed to pass. What do you think about older children remaining on their parent’s policy when they are not in school and can work and aqcuire coverage on their own?
