Stop the proposal to increase your share of your health care premiums from 20% to 25%

The MTA will have a lobbying day on Thursday, April 2nd, 9:30 AM at the State House in the Gardner Auditorium to tell legislatures that we oppose increasing your share of health care premiums from 20% to 25%.  With the increases in co-pays and deductibles you will face, these increased premium costs will be a hardship for our families.   

Significant changes for your health care costs already include (and we cannot change these): 

•    Deductibles will increase for individuals from $250 to $300 per year and for families from $750 to $900 per year.
•    Co-pays for office visits to specialists will rise from $25/$35/$45 to $30/$60/$90.
•    Outpatient surgery co-pays will increase from $125/$150 per occurrence to $250 per occurrence.
•    Inpatient hospital admissions will increase from $250/$500/$750 to $275/$500/$1,500.
•    Premiums increases for most plans, for an average of 5.7%  See
