Family of five-wow. As a lowly paid regional pilot no less. Do you pay additional for the 2 wives?ClearRight said:For my family of five with the SkyWest United HealthCare's National PPO:
$121.77 per pay check ($243.54 per month)
Curious how that compares to what you're paying now?
Funny, I only pay $87 a month. Are you including dental also?SkyW120 said:Since last year the med benefits have become worse and more expensive. Hopefully with a larger group of employees the company will be able to negotiate better rates and better coverage. Here's an example of the most expensive plan:
Delta Dental $13.41sweptback said:I never really paid attention to health insurance, but for just me at ASA it's $37.50/mo including dental (used to be $20 before they raised it last year). Copay is only $15 and while I'm sure people have had problems, I have had a few doctor visits and labs and everything had been paid correctly (although I occasionally get a bill for something like $4, big deal).
While there's more important stuff to worry about, hopefully SkyWest will let the ASA guys keep their health insurance because it sounds like it's a little better.
This "lowly paid" regional pilot has one wife, is not part of the predominant religion who, by the way, banned polygamy in the early 1900's and will probably come pretty darn close to making $90K this year- well above the national average.miles otoole said:Family of five-wow.
