From $100 per month to $1000 dollars per month; a 1,000-percent increase for retirees of Webb county. Several of those retirees showed up in protest of the new amount, not knowing if they will be able to afford health insurance. "I was devastated. I was in disbelief. I lost sleep and there was a lot of crying. I can't imagine our salary set and then pay almost half of it to insurance. It's unbelievable." That was the thought of all Webb County retirees that came to commissioner’s court Monday morning when they received these letters. A $900 per month increase is just too much, they say, for those on a fixed income. The increase they say is causing a lot of stress, which leads to even more health problems. "The people that have diabetes. That their sugar has gone up, so much because of the stress." Many retirees coming with signs to commissioner’s court, wondering after years of service to the county, why they are pushing them out of county insurance. Webb County Commissioner Jaime Canales said they would look at other options and hope to come up with a solution before this new plan takes effect. "I would like to see if we can revert back what we had until we had a solution to this problem. We understand insurance has gone up naturally. But we can't leave these retirees basically without any support." The new plan, increasing the health insurance rate is set to take effect November 1 if commissioners do not find a solution.
