The proposed payments that School Reform Commission Chairman Bill Green quoted recently - $26 to $67 a month, or $200 for a family - were for a health plan inferior to the one currently provided by our union ("Why the SRC acted quickly, decisively," Oct. 12). There is a "buy up" option, but it costs three-to-five times as much. For a teacher to properly insure a family, the cost will actually be as high as $678 a month.
