US Benefits and Health Coverage Forum

Purpose: Mutual help on health coverage -- COBRA, retirement, Medicare, open-market. Decoding Annual Enrollment. Other company-administered benefits such as discounts. 

(Note that we don't exchange health plan prices on the Benefits forum. There are too many variations, including: when and how people left, which retirement program they are on, geographic location, years of service, dependents, Medicare, and whether spouse is of Medicare age. For future prices there are major unpredictable variables: changes in situation, rising cost of health coverage, and the overall limit on company contribution that was set in 2010 -- which is now becoming a significant factor. Details )
