Health Benefits Survey

Colleagues,

As we communicated yesterday, the NPS has announced their intention to change over from the State Health Benefits plan to a “NPS only plan” through AETNA for all Newark Public School Employees.  The district claims that this change will allow them to save $9.8 million over the next 16 months while providing the same benefits we receive now.

While we acknowledge that choosing a provider is district prerogative, we also know this district is "data obsessed."  We are putting together the following survey to get members' thoughts on this change.

Potential Change to Health Benefits Provider

Colleagues,

The NPS has announced their intention to change over from the State Health Benefits plan to a “NPS only plan” through AETNA for all Newark Public School Employees.  The district claims that this change will allow them to save $9.8 million over the next 16 months. While we hesitate to trust any claim made by the district, if this is accurate, it would free up money that could prevent layoffs, etc, and this savings could mean members would be contributing less per month to their health benefits.
