Peak Legal: "Go Find Your Own Health Insurance"



From: "Frank Barone"
Date: July 17, 2009 11:02:10 AM EDT
Subject: Medical Plan

We regret to inform you that effective September 1, 2009, The Peak Organization will no longer be offering the Empire BC/BS HMO Plan to temporary employees. Our enrollment in this plan no longer meets the minimum participation required by Empire BC/BS as shown below.

Letter from Empire BC/BS:

“This is to advise you (The Peak Organization) that your HMO healthcare plan contract is being terminated effective 09/01/2009.”

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will make available on our web site information regarding Empire BC/BS NY individual medical plans within the next two weeks.

The dental plan does remain in place.

Thank you very much.

That's what happens when these agencies try to hire undocumented foreigners with LLM's to help cut down on the coding rates. Many of them are overweight, have diseases, and wind up abusing the limited health insurance benefits. It's no wonder why Empire dropped this ghetto agency from their group insurance pool.

Down with saddlebag girls!!!

I see some of the most unhealthy, self-destructive behavior on some of these projects. Obese saddlebags sitting on their butts all day stinking up the kitchen with their fried chicken. Alcoholics, drug users, and adulterers cheating on their wives and spreading diseases.

It sounds like their plan was not really subsidized by Peak so the cost was high. Thus they had fewer and fewer temps to apply for it. That plus the recession and bingo, cancelled.

The plans agencies offer are terrible anyway. Even with coverage you'll go bankrupt if something happens. At least I have SSC to help me pay Sallie Mae.

yeah, you're better off insuring yourself through the ABA

today is my last day document reviewing on this connecticut gig. in five years of document reviewing, i have never signed up for a temporary agency health plan. i have some major medical insurance that i pay for individually. no preventive health care benefits due to a large deductible.

document reviewing is hard word in the abyss. i hope never to return to unless i get a better cut of the pie.

Can you at least stay on COBRA for the plan?

President Obama, where are you?

Anonymous said...

If you are on COBRA and getting the 2/3 stimulus reduction it looks like you have to take the temp agency's plan when it is available(after you have worked the required 30 days) or you will no longer be eligible for the 2/3 reduction.

no 12:30 its what happens when either a) you don't have enough people to qualify at the group rate or b) you don't make the payments, stupid asshole.

Going to the hospital/clinic without insurance is not funny:
- 3 stitches can cost you around $600.
- sprained ankle $90 X-ray and office visit $100.
- Appendectomy $12K
- Tetanus shot $150

Health care in this country is sick

I read an illuminating article in the Wall Street Journal yesterday about what a scam the HB1 visa program is. There is so much fraud in the program. Lawyers are complicit in allowing business to get around the requirement that they have to try to find qualified Americans to do the work before they can hand out American visas like candy. Congress is trying to institute an audit check of this program, but low balling businesses and certain law firms are lobbying hard against it. Write your representatives! We are being invaded, while the elites are getting rich within their gated communities.

I wonder if that horrible Jewess Helene Diamond has had her health insurance cut, too.

Don't be hatin' on sadddlebag girls. They are good for agencies because they are always ready to put in long hours - even at a minutes notice. No body wants saddlebag girls - they don't got no man, and even if they do, he don't want to see their ugly faces at home, so, unlike all you all who get restless and have "things to do", saddlebag girls stay glued to their seats.

Avoid Peak Legal. Kathy Fournaris got my (excellent) references mixed up with another applicant's (terrible) references and I lost several jobs because of this. Only after I threatened to sue for defamation did Fournaris admit her error.

Very true!
EP Dine "Frankendine" makes a big la-la-la about their so-called health plan, to which they contribute nothing in their usual cheap way.
I looked and found lower rates off the rack on the Internet.

Peak sucks!
Fuck you Helene Diamond you greedy bitch!

It's important to follow Peak because they are the market leader for low pay and terrible conditions. That's where the infamous "Shawn Treadwell" got his satanic training.

The reason why the Peak program was cancelled was because it sucked so no one wanted it, hence they didn't meet the "minimums".

Helene wouldn't give you a nickel she's cheap as hell.

You stupid stupid twerp.

None of the agencies would buy a donut for their temps let alone a health plan.

It's the opposite - they GET A KICKBACK for signing their people up from the insurance company.

Duh, duh, duh I work for these agencies for years and still you don't have a fucking clue!!!

It reminds me of the monkey temps who debate each other about the merits of temping and which agency is better - the same old discussions ...........

Most of the recruiters I know are: 1) Young (max 35; I think they have a mandatory retirement age). 2) Female. 3) Pretty. 4) Preppy. 5) That Attitude, I am not sure what to call it. I have yet to meet an ugly recruiter or one that I can trust!

That joker, Borat-ish dope who parades around iin his gym short at 55 Water street thinking that he is some hot shit. Meanwhile, everyone is snickering behind his albanian stupid ass. He has a head that is certain to have been the result of either incest or goat fucking.

"Borat" That is just hilarious. I think i saw him last week at night in his smelly casual wear. HI-fucking-larious!

Isn't this Borat's name Anus or something? He really does think he is hot shit. Maybe he does not have a mirror at home?

"Anus" - you guys are so funny. I am not sure which I like better. Borat is great, too. He is fugly so I agree, no mirrors hehe

I hated this motherfucker. He always came into my caseroom, and asked for supplies - like he was so cute and hot I would always give him my stationery. I was like get lost motherfucker, go upstairs and get your own shit. Maybe David F and Gary and a few pathetic staffers are impressed by your looks b/c they don't see the light of day beyond the basement, but I am a normal person [well, I used to be] and I do get out and about and you are not all that hot!! He really annoyed me - acting all sweet and really being a ruthless asshole.

Peak is a crappy agency anyway. They dicked me around for 2 weeks back in March for that stupid Paterson Belnap job. I went for an interview at 8 am Sat morning and then they delayed it about 20 X until finally shitcanning the whole thing.

Looks like Peak is on the way out, they have no jobs and will probably fold by years end.

That Albanian at S&C, Anus, super annoying, I agree. I have no idea why he thought he was hot, and why even some of the other staff attorneys thought he was hot. Some staffers had such an inferiority complex - they were like oh he's so good looking , he wears nice clothes, Gary likes him, we are fucked...

Get a life, guys - oh and get your eyes checked. You've been spending too much time in the basement. Next Big Mamma will look like Halle Berry to you. Anus looked like a regular NOBODY - and certainly NOT hot. Jeez these idiots staffers should get out and see the real world and see what's really hot - certainly not Anus Albanian from the basement.

Yes, Peak is pretty dead. Several recruiters I worked with left. I worked with them last year for many months on ridiculously low rates and did a great job and got glowing reviews from the employer - you'd think they would watch out for me in this year's slump. But no they never call - perhaps they don't have anything. Or perhaps they are yet another agency doling it out to the fat and greasy SaddleBag Queens.

Low rate and Peak are synonymous.
Helene is the opposite of trying to work hard for you to get a good deal and to explain the valuable service.
