An inconveniently timed study conducted by The Pew Charitable Trusts says Wisconsin state employees have the second-most-generous health insurance plan in the nation — even after Act 10!
Nationally, state health plans picked up 92% of enrollee health care costs (accounting for deductibles). Wisconsin picks up 97%. (Only Connecticut picked up more, at 98%.)
The average premium for state employees in Wisconsin totals $1,331 a month; taxpayers picked up 87%. This is what would be termed a “platinum plan” under Obamacare. Nationally, premiums for state employees were $963 a month, with taxpayers paying 84% of the total.
