They target two insurance programs and would save the state about $92 million.&nbsp; About 77,000 retired teachers and their dependents are covered under the Teachers Retirement Insurance Program and the Community College Insurance Program.&nbsp; If Quinn&#39;s plan is approved, retirees could be forced to pay higher premiums.
