Albany -- Lt. Governor Mark Taylor says a new health plan for state workers is a mistake that will put an extra burden on thousands of Georgians.

Taylor says Governor Sonny Purdue should get personally involved in negotiations with United Healthcare and allow teachers and other state workers more time to decide whether to sign up for the plan. The deadline is November 8th.

Many teachers complain the plan provider doesn't provide a sufficient network of doctors or hospitals. 

"With only a handful of doctors signed up, most of the hospitals not signed up, our state employees our teachers maybe driving to Columbus or Atlanta to get basic healthcare," said Taylor.

Taylor is running for governor against Secretary of State Cathy Cox in the democratic primary.
