Have you received your open enrollment forms?

It’s open enrollment time for health care coverage through your employer.

In 2010, more of the burden will fall on workers. A recent Towers Perrin survey found that employee premium contributions, on average, will rise by 10 percent, or just over $200 next year. In 2009, there was a 8 percent increase.

Have you received your open enrollment forms? Are the costs higher? What other changes have you noticed?

Or did your employer decided to stop offering insurance coverage?

We want to hear from you. A reporter may call you back or you can email AJC reporter Shelia M. Poole at: spoole@ajc.com.

I retired from AT&T in ‘89 with the understanding that health ins. would be paid for as part of the retirement pkg. Recently, Alcatel-Lucent has re-written the health ins. with United Health Care to the effect that if I don’t have medicare part B, they wouldnot be paying anything toward my med. bills, in effect leaving me without any ins. coverage for Dr. bills, tests, & other fees usually associated with health care coverage. It’s the health ins. that isn’t!

I have having to make choices based on guessing whether or not I’ll be sick next year. I don’t think we’ll see true healthcare reform in my lifetime.
