We’ve been paying a fortune that grows every year for health insurance. Now, however, the Texas legislature has done something useful and adjuncts can get health insurance through the school. We have to pay more than the full-time faculty, but we can get it. Since many colleges, especially community colleges like mine, are taught by mostly adjuncts, that’s a good chunk of people who can now get health insurance.
When I went to enroll they told me it was expensive, because I am paying 40% more than full-timers. But it is about 33% of what I am paying now for my insurance. So we are making a huge savings! Or we will be, come July.
And, the best news, is that our primary care physician and my Ob-Gyn are both on the new plan.
