The Board discussed the FY 17-18 Health Insurance premiums with the Department Heads. In December 2016, the department heads were asked to increase the health insurance line item by five (5 percent). In mid January, Chickasaw County was informed by IGHCP (third party administration) that Chickasaw County received a 9.43 percent increase from Wellmark however, due to the plan structure IGHCP bought down the benefits through partial self funded plan, the actual health insurance increase was 2.04 percent effective July 1, 2017. The Board requested IGHCP to further reduce the health insurance premiums from a 2.04 percent increase to 0 percent increase using money from our IGHCP trust (Chickasaw County money) for health insurance premiums effective July 1, 2017. The Board informed the departments that the Health Insurance premiums for FY 17-18 will not increase and asked the County Auditor to remove the five (5) per cent increase from the departmental budgets and also calculate each employee who participates in the health insurance program as a single or family. The Board also informed the department heads if there is a change of status in the department and the department cannot accommodate the increase the Board will consider a budget amendment for FY 17-18.
