Now that the Kentucky Retirement Systems Board of Trustees has decided to shift Medicare-covered public retirees from the state's self-funded supplemental insurance into a Medicare Advantage plan run by Humana, pensioners will have to watch to see whether the putative savings last - and wonder whether more ominous changes to benefits might be in the works. The trustees voted 5-3 to accept the idea supported earlier on a 3-2 vote of the KRS Retiree Health Plan Committee. Its biggest selling point is that Medicare Advantage will save both retirees and the state some cash. That's critical to KRS, which faces a $19 billion unfunded liability in its combined pension systems.

Dear Editor: One very important fact that has not been mentioned in regard to the high cost of health insurance for Kentucky teachers is that employees of the state's public universities as well as employees of many Kentucky cities have their own low-cost health insurance plans, but these employees are only insured by those plans while they are actively working. Once they retire, they are pushed out of those plans and into the state health insurance program that serves both active and retired teachers.
