We've heard a lot recently about the health insurance that is finally being offered to UNICCO workers on campus. Though there are still no details on what will be covered and on deductibles and co-pays (details that can make a plan with a reasonable monthly premium completely useless to all intents and purposes), you may be interested to learn the following figures for monthly premiums, which have been announced.
Employee - $13
Employee/Spouse - $265.79
Employee/Child - $240.51
Family - $493.30
For a worker making $8.50 per hour, working 40 hours per week, family coverage represents 36% of pre-tax salary. According to the Washington Post, President Shalala makes $516,904 per annum. If she had to pay for health insurance at the same rate, it would cost her $15,507 per month.
