Health insurance is a complex issue for URA members this year. After eight years of increasing costs imposed by the NJ Legislature, we can once again bargain over our health insurance options. Rutgers unions will bargain this Fall to gain new options which State workers already have, to save money and offer new, quality plans. Even so, October is still the legal open enrollment period for calendar year 2020 benefits for all public employees and some of us will make changes in our coverage before bargaining is complete. (Any further changes will be available through a special open enrollment period after we complete negotiations.)
Please share your answers to the following 10 question survey. Your responses will serve as a guide to the URA bargaining team on our priorities for health insurance as we move forward.
