Educator health care

Educators shouldn't have to choose between caring for themselves and paying the bills.
Health insurance costs for educators have soared in the past decade, and in many areas are rising faster than negotiated salary and wage increases.

The state needs to invest in educator health plans, including the Public Employees Insurance Program, or PEIP.

Many educators who leave the classroom cite health care costs as a reason to change industries. To address the staffing crisis in our schools, Minnesota must provide affordable, reliable health insurance to these essential workers.

Together, we can elect leaders who will:
• Reduce the exorbitant cost of health insurance for educators through strengthening PEIP and supporting policies that make health insurance more affordable for all Minnesotans.
