    Found this out the other day. Didn't hear this at all with everyone telling us how great teamcare is. It's to the point it is what it is.

    If you die your dependents would still be covered by teamcare for 5 years after your death. I thought that was a great plus. Well beware, if you go out of the teamcare network at all you loose that coverage. You then would have to stay totally in network for 2 years to have that coverage re-established. June 1st we all have that benefit. If you go out of network at all (except emergency care) you loose it.

    Stonefish, I don't have documentation, you can make the call for yourself. ;).

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    I read that too...you are correct. The way I also read it...if you die prior to June 1, 2016...your family won't qualify for the 5 year death benefit...even if you stayed in network.
     
  3. No mention of the change of the "one punch rule". Can't wait till everyone finds out about that one!!
    THIS IS NOT A COMPARABLE PLAN!
    THE PIGS ARE IN THE MARBLE PALACE!

    One punch rule?
     
  5. The required one punch a week being changed from one punch a month to be eligible for healthcare... They are hiding that FACT

    That's rough. They got some nerve expecting us to show up to work at least one day a week. Why, that's almost like having a job.

    Now we have to show up on vacation to punch in for at least one minute. It's fact because I just posted it.

    That's always been the rule here. In 16 years, I've never heard of anyone being dropped from coverage. Might be a concession to you, but it's all ever known. I see it to be more of an equalizer than a concession.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    When I was a casual it was 36 days in a quarter to get benefits for the following quarter.

    Ok so you're upset that your family gets additional coverage you don't currently have under the company plan. You guys are freakin amazing.

    No one hid that it was on literature being passed out.

    That is not true either. If you have an injury or illness your employer is required to make H & W contributions. Also you file for disability you get 26 weeks of H & W and on long term disability an additional year.

    I know plenty of people that have had their coverage dropped.

    Under the company plan.

    Under that great company plan everyone keeps talking about if you don't file within 30 days, no coverage. Not that way under CS.
    Under that great company plan when they contest your workers compensation, no benefits. Not that way under CS.
    Go ahead, come back with some other comments. It isn't changing anything and people don't want to hear the facts. I'm sorry, certain people.
     
  18. Trying to rationalize it is a waist of time.

    I'm sorry I will try not to do that again
     
  20. It's human nature. What you have to remember is that it's still so new. A year from now when the dust settles and the growning pains are gone maybe just maybe people will be a little more rational. As in life you will always have your haters. What else do they have better to do?
