Bell South Retiree Medical Insurance

My husband retired from Bell South, now AT&T, with full medical benefits with co-pays. Since AT&T has taken over Bell South, AT&T has changed retiree insurance to a different company than active employees. Bell South retirees and family members now have to pay a $300 deductible and approximately $1300 each out-of-pocket expenses, whereas, active employees still have the same benefits they did with Bell South with no deductibles or out-of-pocket expenses except for co-pays. My husband worked 30 years for these benefits and has a contract with Bell South, where his benefits are the same as active employees. I would like to know if AT&T is legally responsible for honoring that contract. Thank you.

Probably not, but it would depend on the specific terms of the contracts.
