CONTRIBUTION ESTIMATES

The estimates below show what employee and University contributions would be if changes were already in place today. Although U-M Premier Care (UMPC) has been used as the model for these early estimates because of its high faculty and staff enrollment, all U-M plans will continue to be offered in 2010.

Actual health plan rates for 2010 will be available by August 15, 2009. Health plan descriptions and all plan rates also will be published during Open Enrollment in October when benefit elections for the following calendar year are made.

Understanding the Estimates:

Sample salaries are shown below for illustrative purposes. Ranges will adjust each year as salaries change, but the ranges in 2008, for example, would have been:

Band 1: $37,600 or less
Band 2: $37,601 to $50,400
Band 3: $50,401 or more

The first two charts below show the impact in 2010 when half the increase takes effect, and the next two chart estimate the change in 2011 when the changes are fully implemented.

The rate estimates below show monthly deductions. If you are paid bi-weekly, contributions are deducted in equal amounts from the first two paychecks of each month (in months with three paychecks, no deduction is taken from the final check).
