They have a sign out front that says "hiring full time-WITH BENEFITS" but I found out today that they only have fast food part time job health insurance. You pay one hundred percent of everything until you pay a 3000 dollar deductible. That does not qualify as BENEFITS. They are also the lowest paying factory in butler county.
oh yeah

why wouldn't that be a benefit? What do you have now no insurance? If you have a 3000.00 deductible its better than having no insurance at all....a gall bladder will cost around 10K...with the deductible paid you save 7K....what do you want to pay all of it or some of it....I don't understand

You don't understand.. until you meet the $3000 deductible, you don't have health insurance. You go to the doctor because you have the flu, you pay 80+ dollars because the insurance pays nothing. You get a prescription, you pay 100% of the cost because there is zero prescription coverage. For people on the floor who make 10 bucks an hour, that's absolutely devastating. Imagine that without insurance your prescriptions cost you 200 dollars a month... you still won't meet the yearly deductible. They basically no longer offer health insurance to their workers, only a very expensive medical catastrophe insurance. It's allegedly a decision made by the corporate office, but it doesn't matter who called the shot because the workers on the floor are getting flushed down the toilet anyways. They could have kept real insurance and let people opt to pick up the extra cost that increased that the company didn't want to cover, but instead they opted to save money at the expense of their employees health and livelihoods. They should feel ashamed (but they won't).

I am a former employee of Revere and I agree wholeheartedly. The changes which were implemented at the first of the year were devestating. I know they said it was a corporate decision, but I'm not so sure I believe it. Revere is not ran by people who give two cents about their employees anyway. I began looking for a different job as soon as I found out about the insurance changes because it's just not realistic to think that any family could maintain health coverage like that. It's ridiculous. Revere Plastics is by far the most unprofessionaly ran business I have ever been employed at in my entire adult life. They don't run the company with even a shred of integrity, they are "shady" and decietful if it suits thier purposes, and the "policies" are absurd. Most respectable companies give their employees a certain number of sick days per year (typically one sick day per month is the norm, in my experience). Not the case with Revere. What's worse is that because the powers that be don't give a hoot one way or another about their employees, they have absolutely ZERO compassion for them. They will say it's policy and this and that...but when you hear the way they talk about people behind their backs you realize what a group of terrible people they really are (not all of them, btw, I'm speaking about the majority - and certainly the ones who actually have the power to change things but don't - because they don't care)

I know the topic was about insurance...I guess I had some ranting to get off my chest.

Anway, "I work there" is right - Revere has a HORRIBLE insurance plan and an even worse managment team. If I had known when I accepted that job what I was getting myself into, I would have taken the other job that I turned down - because they DIDN'T OFFER INSURANCE! Talk about a cruel irony.

There might be a FEW good people in management there, but not many. Right now they are firing people faster than they can hire them and the ones they do hire rarely last more than a week. Now that they are starting to force every Saturday they can look to lose a few dozen more employees either to calling in or quitting. The guy that runs the place needs to Man Up and fix their longstanding human resources problem.

So what you want is not insurance. You want a pre paid medical plan. You have insurance on your car, but it doesn't cover oil changes or new tires. And your home owners policy doesn't pay for you to paint your house.
The game between insurance companies and the medical providers has to come to an end.
Get used to the high deductible medical insurance. It won't be long before all employers go to it.
Business does not exist to provide your health care. Health care is an added benefit, not a right. You will see more and more businesses go to the high deductible or stop offering insurance completely.

You can get our own health insurance plan from Blue Cross Blue Shield. Go on the internet and plug in "affordable health insurance". I took out a policy on my child because my employer's insurance wanted $426 per month to add and cover dependendants and a spouce. My employer pays mine totally as a benefit, but to add depenendants was totally utragious, so we took out a private policy through Blue Cross Blue Shield for $63.00 for my child. My husband took out his own through his employer for $84 per month. So, you should be able to get an affordable policy privately. Hope that helps. Good luck.

I don't get it either. Health insurance wasn't meant to pay for every time you went to the doctor for a fart-sniffle. Its purpose is to have your expenses covered in unexpected situations. As XCELLENT stated, you don't use your auto insurance to pay for an oil change. And that's a good thing. Because, I can guarantee, that if auto insurance started covering routine maintenance, tire-and-lube places would dramatically increase their prices. The fact is you wish to have hundreds of dollars in health care covered at a fraction of its cost.

I get by just fine without insurance. When I had an allergic reaction to my dog's semen recently, there was more than enough money in my Health Savings Account to cover the costs. Just plan ahead!

I guess I should be flattered by your imitation. Except, I don't have a dog.

Any employer worth their weight in salt offers health insurance, not because they're "obligated", but because they actually care about the hard work their employees put in. Those of you who say you "don't get" the big deal have obviously never been in the predicament of having a very sick child yet the inability to take him/her to see a doctor because everyone wants payment up front, including urgent care and the emergency room (if you don't have insurance, especially). Plus, if you have to have labwork done, you have to pay the entire cost up front before they will even do it (again, this is if you don't have insurance). I know because this is what happened with my child - and labwork isn't cheap. I'm talking upward of $600 for several blood tests which were necessary.

I realize that I'm not going to change anyone's mind here...if there is one thing I know about people is that we believe whatever we want and whatever is convenient. I just think it's amazing how quickly people change their tunes once they have to sit on the OTHER side of the fence one time.

At any rate - lack of insurance benefits is a bigger problem here in Poplar Bluff than anywhere else I have worked; the wages are much lower (everywhere, not just Revere); and and the worst part is that companies get away with it because half the population doesn't know any better. You can say whatever makes you feel better about it but the fact of the matter is that any employer worth working for offers health insurance and the very minimum. If an employer is too cheap to provide decent health insurance for the employees who will be working hard to make money FOR THE COMPANY, then how well do you think they will value their employees? Not very well.

Use your brain here is how you work the system . go to your doctor tell you need to use up a 3,000 dollar deductible offer to pay him 3300 if he gives you back the 3000 and your deductible is now met . It's a win win .
