In regards to Marty Swant's article on the MU Systems health insurance vs. the Missouri Consolidated Health Plan, I have a single comment to make.
I left the University of Missouri in November 2007 to take a state position. My health insurance premium at MU in 2007 was $125 per month--for just health. Dental and vision insurance were extra. Based on my paycheck stub, my insurance premium under the Missouri Consolidated Health Plan is $33.42 every two weeks – including vision and dental. That works out to $72.41 each month.
The math spreaks for itself. I am currently paying about $50 a month less than I did at MU.
