State confirms Newark prohibited from reimbursing retiree health care costs after controversial plan change – Newark NJ News – TAPinto

A great example of politicians and bureaucrats not understand health benefits or what they are doing. Surprised? Thinking you are going to save money but promising to keep benefits (rich benefits) the same  oh my!

“Under his proposal, retirees will be given a “difference card” to cover any cost above what retired employees contractually must pay for their prescriptions — no more than $1.50 or $5 for former public safety workers.”

 The state says they can’t do that and for good reason. But the real question is why would anyone agree to such a plan with a $1.50 co-pay? Public employee unions strike again. 🙃
