MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Miami-Dade school district has reached a tentative healthcare deal with its teachers union.

The proposal covers an expected $65 million increase in healthcare costs for 2012.

Under terms of the plan, the free healthcare option will remain for employee-only coverage. Teachers who opt for dependent care will have to pay more. The increase will depend on the teacher’s pay scale, which benefits they choose and the number of dependents.

The deal will need to ratified by the county’s 20-thousand plus teachers.
