Send statements to prevent your health care costs from increasing

2/2/17

Dear Colleague,

The Group Insurance Commission (GIC) heard from members across the state yesterday, all of us opposing them for the health care cost increases they want to impose on us.  These include:

  •          Increasing your deductibles to $500 per individual/1000 per family—or higher.
  •          Adding a deductible for most prescription plans of $100 per individual/$200 per family.
  •          Freezing participation in many health care plans.
  •          Increasing costs for Medicare retirees.    
  •          Click here for further details.                   

The GIC is now taking statements from members.  Please send yours by tomorrow, Friday, 2/3/17, in the questions/comments section here http://www.mass.gov/gic/contact

Along with this or after tomorrow, you can also email the GIC Commissioners at:
