Health care drives most of the cost of our benefits. Yet, many of us pay no premium and get our care at Yale Health. Across the country heath care costs are skyrocketing. Yale has signaled for years now that as these costs rise, they would like to pass these increases along to us. It is our contract that has held these costs at bay, and we are making sure that we fight as hard as we can to keep our standard intact.

We haven’t begun these negotiations yet, but our health care team has been working to make sure that we are ahead of the game when we do.

The team has been working incredibly hard to keep health care costs low, while maintaining our excellent options. We submitted a thorough information request last November to assess all aspects of our medical plans and health programs. This month the University fulfilled the last piece of the request with a detailed study on the prices both Aetna and Yale Health pay for services at Yale-New Haven Hospital and the Yale Medical Group.

We’ll analyze this data and make sure that Yale is able to get the best costs possible for our members, keeping our health care options intact.
