Retiree Healthcare Costs Becoming More Clear In Tentative AFSMCE Contract

It’s still not clear if state government retirees will have to pay health insurance premiums… but if they do, they now have a clearer sense of how much it could cost.


The tentative contract between AFSCME and the state includes a breakdown of the rates that would be charged if a state law ending free retiree health insurance is upheld in the courts.


Retirees would pay 1 to 2 percent of their pensions, effective this July… the rate would double in July of 2014.


But AFSCME says those rates are far lower than what the administration wanted to impose.
