    I expected more of a difference in the Self +1 option. $5.40 Bi-Weekly difference in the Blue Cross Standard Option.

    So far, not a fan.

    NALC High Family plan 131 dollars vs Self Plus One 136 biweekly, 5 dollars higher
    for self plus one is that a joke? Why even have Self plus 1 if it costs more than family plan really?

    Self+1? They are scamming folks. It is a big joke! Come on people, A family of four is going to cost you more than a family of 2!!! All the govt said that the premiums (for S+1) could not be higher than for S+F. No kidding? How stupid do they take us for? I am disgusted!

    Medicare is primary for my wife & I & pays 80% of all our medical expenses. Our FEHB Blue Cross is secondary & pays the 20% not covered by Medicare but our premiums have not decreased one cent since we went on Medicare 3 years ago!
