Annoying Acne: It’s Not Just for Adolescents

January 12, 2015

 

Acne is just a teenager problem, right?  No. It can also be an issue for adults, especially women. Twenty-five percent of women in their 30’s get acne and it can plague people for decades. Experts at Mayo Clinic have tips on how to handle adult acne. [TRT 1:46]

If I have left over money in (FSA)at year end, is the roll-over automatic into 2016 FSA or is there something we need to do?

Whom does the money that does not roll over go to? I've always wondered this.

I am retiring in November and moving to another state. Since there is not an outside plan that will cover Mayo, I have no choice- other than leaving Mayo insurance- but to keep this coverage. I will live thousands of miles away so will have to use the out of network coverage. Why can't people like myself get the cash subsidy now?

Well I’ve said it before and it’s worth saying again. We are very fortunate to work for a world class health organization with significant job security; educational/training programs; steady salary increases despite tenuous economic conditions; great benefits including reasonably priced health insurance; a pension plan and a 403B now with matching; tuition reimbursement; and a myriad of other perks and recognition that come our way throughout the year. I am thankful every day for my job and to be affiliated with Mayo Clinic.

our benefits may see great. But not everyone gets a raise yearly many of the people here haven't had a raise in over 4 years. we don't get a cost of living raise. and our insurance is not the very best. I personally know people that work for other medical business's that have prime coverage. these other facilities also give longevity raises and a cost of living raise each year. for the insurane they pay no lab fees, xray fees, the copays for meds are $5 and $7. and out of pocket is $500 a year. So our insurance could do better. and our raises could also better

COMMENT

I am wondering why if an employee will be $9.10, why then employee+spouse wouldn't be $18.20? Is it because Mayo helps cover the cost of the employee's premium?

COMMENT

Will there be any changes to the Delta Dental coverage or just the premium is increasing?

Least bad, does not equal good. I'm grateful for what I have but I also know what I don't have. My comparrison is to the ideal, which is realistically what we all deserve.

All people make a choice of where they want to work. I guess if insurance coverage is better some place else, people can go work there. I personally, at a past employer, paid over $100 a month just for my health insurance and it hardly covered anything. I am very grateful to work at Mayo and have the benefits they offer.

COMMENT

As someone who's spouse works outside of Mayo Clinic, make sure and review your spouse's insurance plan. Chances are it may be better than Mayo's. If your spouse's company offers dental, you can still use Mayo's Dental/Vision Reimbursement to pay for whatever costs that your spouse's dental doesn't cover.

Will we still have chiropractic care for 2016?

Twenty years ago, I came to Mayo due to their great benefits and their reputation for taking great care of their employees. Now, on the cusp of retirement, I find I no longer have those great benefits that brought me here. Sort of a waste of twenty years.

It would be really nice to add the dental and vision for a prepaid card much like the prescription card. I think it would be a great benefit to employees and not have to submit claims.

What a great idea! Less paperwork for everybody involved. In addition, sometimes I don't have the money upfront to pay for the dentist. I either have to wait for treatment or put it on my credit card which is charging interest then.

COMMENT

I am inquiring about 2016 Delta Dental Coverage–with Deltal Dental of Minnesota, will there be a change of coverage regarding Implants-since Delta did not cover Implants in 2015, but when we had Delta Dental of Wis Implants were covered, Thank you

Do employees still receive additional days of PTO when reaching a milestone anniversary of 20 years and more (20 yrs=2.0 additional PTO days, 25 yrs=2.5 days, etc)?

Why is the Employee + Spouse option garnering by far the largest increase (larger than all the others combined)? It seems that families without children are being penalized more so than those with children that choose to carry dental insurance.

Jump to this post

Typically plan prices are determined based off of utilization. The higher increase in the one policy may be due to several factors, such as several very sick individuals with high claims on that plan. Another reason could be that the group without children may have a higher median age which could put them in a higher spending category. Just my thoughts, I hope it helps, I used to be the benefits person in my previous career.
