first_img July 7, 2012 at 6:54 pm I agree with Rev. Chumbley. For our 3 full time employees our premium increase will be over $21,000 for a medium sized parish in a rural community. We are trying to decide whether to cut parish programs, our extensive outreach ministries, or hurt our employees by reducing their coverage or requiring them to share costs — a net decrease in pay. There is something very wrong with a program that undercuts budgets to that extent. We have always offered very good coverage using a local agent for BCBS. It is beyond me how the BCBS option with DHP is so much higher. I think that as long as employees are adequately covered that we should be allowed to purchase our plan with the most economical option.

Thanks for any info shared. TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Comments (8) Press Release Service Cathedral Dean Boise, ID [Episcopal News Service – Indianapolis, Indiana] General Convention’s Committee on the Church Pension Fund voted July 6 to affirm most of the terms of the mandatory denominational health insurance plan that must be fully implemented less than six months after convention adjourns.In a new resolution, the committee stepped past a number of proposed resolutions (included in the list here) that would have changed the terms of the plan that General Convention passed via Resolution A177 at its last meeting in 2009. That resolution authorized the Church Pension Fund to implement the DHP plan by Jan. 1, 2013, with benefits to be provided through the Episcopal Church Medical Trust.The committee’s new resolution, for which a hearing still must be scheduled, commends the 94 percent of the church’s domestic dioceses (including Puerto Rico and the U.S. portion of the Diocese of the Virginia Islands) that have already joined the plan, and reaffirms the Dec. 31, 2012 enrollment deadline.The committee’s resolution extends until Dec. 31, 2015 A177’s requirement that enrolling dioceses set “minimum cost-sharing guidelines for parity between clergy and lay employees.”According to A177, those guidelines determine the minimum amount that a congregation must contribute towards the monthly premium for eligible clergy and lay employees. The dioceses that have already instituted or formulated cost-sharing policies have chosen options ranging from mandating that employers pay the full cost of a specific plan to requiring all employees to pay a percentage of any plan or of a specific plan.The new resolution also commends the Medical Trust “for progress made toward containing health-care premium costs, and urges it to continue to reduce the disparity in those costs among dioceses.” It also wants the Medical Trust to “continue to explore alternative strategies to arrive at a more equitable sharing of health-care premium costs” and to annually report to Executive Council, the House of Bishops, the medical trust board of directors and the Church Pension Fund trustees detailing progress towards that end.The committee drafted the resolution after the members spent 75 minutes earlier on July 6 discussing the testimony it heard the prior evening. During that discussion, they expressed little or no interest in ending mandatory participation in the plan.Committee members said, however, that they heard a lot of comment about the issue of what has become known as “parity.” Some committee members said people are using the term to refer both to the equal cost-sharing issue required in A177 and to mean a uniform pricing of insurance premiums across the dioceses. A subset of the latter concern, committee members said they heard, involves how the costs of insurance coverage are spread among the dioceses with some paying less and some paying more to support the entire system.It seemed doubtful that a single church-wide premium was achievable, Deputy Chair Deborah Harmon Hines said. “I think the case was made that nothing costs the same thing across the country,” she said.“But the social justice issue is more about bearing one another’s burden. And we’re all over the place on that,” she added. “We’re hearing people say they believe in that except when it comes to their own diocese.”Earlier in the discussion, the Rev. Reid Farrell, a Vermont deputy, illustrated that very point when he called it a “no brainer” that his diocese would buy health insurance outside of the Medical Trust.“I mean, it is for us, anyhow, much as we want to be part of the DHP, the parity and fairness is doing what’s best for the people in our diocese because they’re our first concern,” he said. Other committee members reacted with “Whoa.”Some committee members warned that dioceses and congregations that currently find cheaper coverage elsewhere may see their rates go up. They questioned the fairness of allowing groups to move in and out of the denominational-wide plan based on the market at any given time. In the end, the committee chose not to include concerns over that issue in its resolution.Committee members also discussed the sense they had that some clergy object to paying some portion of their insurance premiums in order to assist the congregations in their dioceses in insuring lay employees.“In order to reach parity, clergy are going to have to give a little,” Deputy Lisa Sargent of Northern California said to a round of agreement from her colleagues.“I don’t understand the resistance,” Harmon Hines agreed. “I understand that for a very long time clergy have gotten totally free health care, but that’s not the rest of the world.”— The Rev.

This means, taking advantage of whatever tax breaks are available.Keep in mind also that clergy are responsible for 100% of the Social Security premium, not halfsies with the employer. Many years I have paid more in FICA tax than in net income tax.In other words, taxes for clergy and taxes for laity are apples and oranges.

For all their posturing that it would “save money” because we would be pooling our resourses, we are seeing that this is simply not true. Monopolies are NEVER a good idea. Mark my words, the next change will be that every diocese will be required to pay the same amount as a matter of “justice.” It will force some diocese to not participate in the DHP. I know my diocese simply would not be able to afford to participate. We already have parishes who have cut hours to below the minimum and put off plans to hire lay employee because they cannot afford the expense. I’m all for requiring health care coverage for our lay employees, but we should be given plenty of time (6 to 8 years) to implement it, and we certainly should not have to buy from the Medical Trust.

Until clergy have parity in terms of the FICA tax, we are talking about apples and oranges.

JOE DUNLAP says: Rector Martinsville, VA Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Polk Van Zandt says: Rector Washington, DC Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Bath, NC July 7, 2012 at 2:56 pm This is a well intentioned proposal that makes no sense fiscally. Has anyone calculated its cost to congregations, which are already struggling amid reduced revenues? If this proposal were mandated upon my parish, which has long provided generous health insurance to full-time lay employees, and in some instances, to their dependents, our treasurer estimates our health insurance costs would increase by some $100,000. If this expansive, expensive mandate passes, I hope the increased costs for it can and will be offset by equal reductions in congregational payments to dioceses, with corresponding reductions in diocesan payments to the national church.

It is restrictive and offers few choices for “in network” providers. Also, speaking of justice, this plan, because it eliminates the options many dioceses now provide that often make it possible to cover employees in a variety (and often cost saving ways), becomes another way that small congregations subsidize larger ones. I imagine a high percentage of small congregations don’t have any lay employees that qualify at all for the insurance. In the name of justice for lay employees in larger congregations, these congregations must bear the increased cost of this prohibitive one choice national plan.

She has been in police detention at the Banda Aceh police headquarters on the Island of Sumatra since 11 September, accused of fraudulent use of a tourist visa. Banda Aceh is the capital of the province, which is prey to separatist fighting by GAM (Free Aceh Movement) rebels. “It is intolerable that no foreign observer whatsoever has been authorised to report on the situation in Aceh,” stated Robert Ménard, Secretary-General of the organisation, adding that “legal artifice cannot mask the authorities’ real intentions which  are to silence any discordant voices”.The British researcher, who lives in Australia and until recently taught at the University of Tasmania, has also worked for the Australian radio and television company ABC and the newspaper Green Left Weekly. She is also well known for her frequent contributions to Asian magazines on the question of the independence of Aceh. Ms McCulloch has been visiting the province for a number of a years in order to carry out research and to write about the conflict which has lasted for 26 years. She has reported in detail on the Indonesian military’s abuses of human rights and has brought to light the economic and financial interests underlying the conflict. She was arrested on 11 September by a group of soldiers, together with an American nurse, Joy Lee Sadler, and their local interpreter, Fitra Bin Amin, as they were leaving a village in the south of the province. Ms McCulloch’s luggage was searched, and her laptop and camera closely examined, in an attempt to find evidence linking her with the rebel groups. The police claim that she had in fact visited a GAM base. Later her house in Aceh was also searched. She has been detained since then, is not allowed to make telephone calls or give interviews, and since 14 September the police have been closely monitoring her meetings with her lawyer. She is also apparently being deprived of sleep and sexually harassed. No decision about her case has yet been taken. She is accused of violating Articles 40 and 52 of the immigration law because she took advantage of her tourist visa to carry out activities in relation to the GAM. She risks a prison sentence of up to five years and/or a fine of nearly 25 million rupiahs. Ms McCulloch had to wait for six days before being granted the legal status of suspect. This is in total violation of the Indonesian penal code, which demands that a status be attributed within 24 hours following the arrest.No foreign presence is tolerated in the province of Aceh, and the authorities are exasperated by what they consider as unjustified support by journalists, human rights groups and intellectuals for the separatist movement in Aceh. Already in March 2002, the Indonesian government refused to renew the press visa of the Jakarta correspondent of the Australian daily papers The Age and Sydney Morning Herald, Lindsay Murdoch.

The letter written by Chengappa said that COVID-patients are not being admitted to hospitals even though beds are available. While non-covid patients are being denied treatment as they may contract the infection. Patients are running from one hospital to another in the hope that they will be admitted to the hospital. Family members of the patients are reduced to begging and beeseaching the doctors and staff of hospital despite which irrelevant technicalities and procedures are being quoted to deny treatment to patients and couple of patients have died at doorsteps of hospitals.

You can’t even give your son a peek at squeaky-clean, well-fed elephants doing tricks and synchronized dances anymore.It’s been about a year since the Barnum & Bailey Circus gave way and took the elephants out of the ring. If Mr. P.T. Barnum could have asked the elephants, they probably would have preferred dancing in the center ring rather than dodging poachers’ bullets in the desert of Mali or the scrub forests in India. But what one veteran of the circus said, told the story – the real, sad, story.“Kids just don’t care about the circus anymore,” the sad-faced man said. “They don’t get excited about the man on the flying trapeze or dancing elephants or even clowns.”I guessed the man was a circus clown who had taken off the funny face that would have masked his sorrow at the closing of the Greatest Show on Earth. Lost revenue and battles with PETA people are commonplace in today’s world. But what the retiring clown said brought to mind, the “wild raccoons” that brought magic and wonder to my childhood.

Parents tell their children, No, Virginia, there is no Santa Claus. There’s no Tooth Fairy or Easter Bunny. If children are not reading the headlines in the Wall Street Journal before they enter first grade, they are behind. To play a game, children must have a uniform, a coach and an umpire. They are electronically entertained by iPhones and high definition TV and a dozen other gadgets.Of course, a circus is dull entertainment.Sadly, little hearts will never stop in fear that the man on the high wire will teeter and fall or gasp when the high trapeze artists flips or laugh with delight when an elephant dances.When the Barnum and Bailey Circus folds its tent,  those small traveling circuses will not be far behind.Last spring, I sat watching a one-stop circus perform, not in a tent, but at Cattleman Park. There were no elephants or high wire acts. Just a balancing act and a dog jumping hoops and pushing a doll carriage. But there was this one little boy who sat spellbound, with big wide eyes. He held his breath during the balancing acts, clapped loudly for the pony and laughed excitedly at the funny, funny clown. His dad, sat right next to him, sharing his joy at the magic and wonder of a simple circus and unaware that he was giving his son a wild raccoon. Now, after nearly a century and a half, the Greatest Show on Earth is closing its doors. The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will fold its tent and bring to a close an era of entertainment like no other.The reasons? Declining attendance and revenues.
