This is unremarkable. The retirement health care plan is usually a supplemental plan to Medicare. My mother is a federal retiree and her primary health insurance if Medicare with a BCBS policy on top for which she pays a portion of the premium. The cost is substantially less than what she was paying for BCBS high option family coverage when she was working.
I'm sorry Mr.Nova but the committee has unanimously decided that due to your lifestyle choices we are withholding any further medical treatment from you, but we have pain relievers to make you as comfortable as possible, we have only enough funds for those who really deserve treatment, I'm sure you understand.
