Those with health insurance see, every year, the same thing eroding their paychecks. In addition to annual increases, another factor that raises the price is age. That is, when the consumer has a birthday and changes his age, the monthly fee is also more expensive. There are even clients who are already seeing their salaries eroded in half or all due to the high cost of their healthcare plan. Below, check out some examples.
The costs of the health plan rise significantly and you get a salary higher than the salary of the client
Among the examples, one can mention what happened to a female saleswoman in Rio de Janeiro. When he turned 59, his health plan became 74.47% more expensive. Thus, the monthly fee rose from R$715.23 in February to R$1,247.91 in March. Thus, the highest tier in the plan is already taking up half of her salary, which earns the minimum wage per month.
In another case, retiree Rosanna Rizzuti experienced something similar last year. In December, she turned 59, and her health plan went from R$1,300 to R$2,117.39 — an increase of 62.87%. Thus, when he contacted Qualicorp, he was offered a plan that cost just under R$1,400. I accepted, but the next ticket was more expensive: R$2247.08. Thus, she canceled the plan and went in search of a new one.
I tried to migrate to other individual plans, but I couldn’t. I ended up getting into a business plan with my nephew, who is a kid, to get me a cheaper plan. Today I pay 1,679 BRL for both of us.”says Rizzotti.
Although retired, Rizzutti advises companies in human resources, a sector in which she has served as a CEO for years of her career. Thanks to that, I was able to pay for a health plan.
Finally, Ruzzutti Slots: “This situation made me feel left out, and the company showed no point in keeping me on the plan. This is because I’m still working. Imagine if I had to rely solely on retirement.”
