New Mexico agencies responsible for health insurance for public employees have done a poor job of controlling health care costs for public employees, a report for the Legislative Finance Committee says.

Instead of focusing on cost-saving measures, the report said, the agencies “have shifted costs onto employees and employers through higher premiums,” which is “unsustainable in the long run.”

    The BIG print givith and the small print taketh away was my experience when I was a State Employee and Union Member and now thankfully retired. Year after year, I remember sitting tru "have we got a deal for you" so called change of Plans sessions to explain our newly negociated health plans always little more than smoke and mirrors or better yet "bait and switch" of how a better deal had been negociated in our name with the various health care plans. And the bottom line always was, in my opinion, less services and higher premiums. And despite the promises being made now, expect more of the same. AND now realize more than ever and despite Obama Care; Single Payer is the ONLY ANSWER.
