This plan is an option for us. Bob Chandler is a member and has kindly sent the following information.

The URL for RTO is: http://www.rto-ero.org/. There you can find information on the plans available, including premiums.

They do have a dental plan but with the 50% subsidy we get it's cheaper through the university.

I also have long term care insurance (premium according to age at joining), home and auto (varies of course - my home insurance is $49.59/month and my auto is $112.72/month).

My total monthly premium (Extended health, Semi-private, Longterm care, home and auto and membership fee in RTO (based on size of pension) is $364.78/month.
