    Just out of curiousity, I was wondering if UPS self-insures health coverage for part-time employees like they do for auto insurance. I'm pretty sure teamsters handles health-care for full-timers, but aren't part-timers health coverage handled by UPS? And then they use a company like Blue-cross/Blue-shield to handle the claims and anonymity of health info..... Anyways, I was just curious. What are your thoughts?

    Yes, insurance plans controlled by UPS are self-insured. This includes management and most of the PTers (some still maintain union-controlled insurance).
