I'm not surprised by this news in Milwaukee:
And of course I'm also not surprised by the response from the teacher's union either:
Heaven forbid that teachers be treated like every other employee of any other business. Do you know of any other insurance plan that allows a person to not pay a penalty if you go out of network? Seriously. Every plan I've always had enforced a higher price if you went out of network, not paid the whole thing.
Instead of simply treating one crook as a symptom, you need to take a look at the language of the contract and see it for what it really is... the cause of the problem. It's a loophole which people will continue to take advantage of, because nobody respects the taxpayer's dollar.
