The North Fond du Lac School District is taking the lead when it comes to saving money on employee health insurance costs.
A new health insurance plan put in place will save the district more than a quarter million dollars next year.
The Board of Education on Monday approved a modified plan with the Wisconsin Education Association Trust that would retain the same physicians and network.
The WEA Trust lowered premiums for next year with the promise the school’s wellness will be monitored to ensure that claims don’t outrun premiums.
Working with consultants Key Benefits Concepts, an insurance committee comprised of administrators, teachers and secretaries sought competitive bids from six insurance carriers, said Superintendent Aaron Sadoff.
“This plan will yield the district significant savings, continue great coverage for our educators and associates and help to transition our district’s view of insurance, usage and wellness initiatives,” he said.
Based on 44 single and 96 family plan enrollments, insurance costs will total $1.89 million this year, $1.6 million in 2012 and $1.8 million in 2013. Combined savings to the district for 2012 and 2013 will equal $339,484.
Further evidence that Wisconsinites should REFUSE to sign a recall petition. The reforms are working.
