Just got my 2015 COBRA open enrollment / rate letter. P.P.O. B.S. of California up 10% over 2014 , Kaiser HMO up 8 % , Delta Dental P.P.O., Down a couple of dollars a mo.
never seen that before.
No word yet on the retiree plan rates (retirees with less than 25 years service have to pay part)
The COBRA plans and the Retiree plans have very similar coverage , but are not linked, as the pension plan is an independent entity from the employer in my case.
Will report back when I get the retiree rates for 2015
