2012 UC Benefit Choices

This year, the university was even less transparent with UC unions regarding the upcoming year’s benefits changes, just sending us a link after they had posted the details on At Your Service.

Please take a look at this summary of the monthly premiums and the change ($ and %) are on the UPTE-CWA website. In the past, most UPTE-CWA members have opted for Health Net or Kaiser. Blue Cross PPO tends to be chosen by those who feel the higher co-pays are worth the benefit of additional choice of providers.

For TX/RX employees, UPTE is still negotiating with UC regarding the increased costs for Health Net and the pension plan. Unfortunately, we do not know when this bargaining will conclude. Until an agreement is finalized by a member vote, all TX/RX employees will continue to pay the 2010 rates. UPTE-CWA made a comprehensive proposal to settle these issues in mid-September, but UC has yet to respond.
