Florida Government Officials, the rich members, pay $8
member, $30 for families.
Governor, state senators, state house of representatives, mayors, attorney generals, all of the council members, and their close friends in Florida!
You know the people, the ones that have been taking from the poor and what is left of the Middle-Class, for years!
Average Employees, the poor working people, pay $50 employee
and $180 to cover their family.
Bring state employee health insurance costs in line with the U.S. average
“Bring our health insurance costs and mandates in line with the U.S. average.”
Scott has proposed that all state workers pay the same amount for health care coverage: $50 for individual coverage or $180 for family coverage. But there remain 22,700 employees including certain managers and the governor who get a much better deal: $8.34 for individual coverage or $30 for family coverage. That’s because the Legislature has not agreed to increases for them

A Senate Republican has filed a proposal aimed at overhauling the health-insurance program for state employees.
The proposal (SB 1434), filed by Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, is similar to measures pushed in the past by House leaders, who have long sought changes in the insurance program.
In part, the bill would lead to the state in 2019 offering plans with four different benefit levels to employees. Also starting that year, employees would be given an incentive to choose plans that have lower premium costs than the money contributed by the state for coverage.
In such cases, employees would be able to use the leftover amounts to increase their salaries or for other health-related purposes, such as buying additional benefits.
Among other things, the bill also would adjust employee-contribution rates next year. The change would give employees a choice of paying more for richer HMO coverage or paying less for lower-value PPO coverage. The bill is filed for the 2016 legislative session, which starts Tuesday.
