Only 770 of 9,106 FEMA employees that show up to clear wreckage, save lives, and provide comfort to victims are privy to federal health insurance.
Orange,California (PRWEB) November 06, 2012
Imagine working hurricane relief, earthquake disaster recovery or some other natural event that’s destroyed homes and lives.
That’s what FEMA employees do.
They show up, they assess, and they offer peace of mind and more to victims of natural disasters. But, being a FEMA federal employee doesn’t mean they have the peace of mind federal health insurance offers other employees.
According to the Washington Post, only 770 of 9,106 FEMA employees that show up to clear wreckage, save lives, and provide comfort to victims are privy to federal health insurance. Being part time employees, even though they are exposed to such horrible conditions, disqualifies them for the coverage their federal cohorts are provided.
Once, there was work to get these employees on the federal health benefits plans, but it was dead in the water without proper backing.
So many FEMA workers cannot afford to carry private policies and due to their unpredictable lives, they can’t find part time work that would allow them to get proper coverage, either.
Federal health care offers great benefits to those employees that are full time, but those that are part time and work under duress can’t get affordable coverage.
