Faced with a 28 percent increase in health insurance costs, Harrison County magistrates voted to switch carriers.
“We’ve been dealing with this for months,” said Harrison County Judge-Executive Alex Barnett at Tuesday’s fiscal court meeting.
The county pays 100 percent of the employees’ premiums. Barnett said that practice was in jeopardy had an alternative plan not been found.
Steve Parrish of Smith Insurors presented a policy proposal from United Health Care that drops the county’s annual premium from $303,000 to $257,000.
