A Challenge To CA Journalists

Dear Journalists,

We have a challenge for you: Try to find a single state or city that provides richer post-employment insurance to retired prison guards and police than CA, LA or SF, which supply unlimited health insurance to retired employees and their spouses even when they are on Medicare or entitled to Covered California.* Let us know if you do.

David Crane

*Covered California provides premium support even to high incomes such as those earned by retired public safety employees with hefty pensions and (because they can retire as young as 50) often additional post-employment income. Eg, families of four with incomes of up to $154,500/year can get subsidies at Covered California. See more here.
