The Pulaski County Commissioners heard a presentation about the county’s health insurance from representatives from Cigna and the Bennett Insurance Agency.
Overall, the numbers looked good and Commission President Larry Brady explained the county is saving money in working with the insurance company to spread health awareness.
“Claims are down this year and that’s in tribute to the education of our employees,” stated Brady. “We’re letting them know the plans that we have available and ways they can better their health over time.”
Brady said the county is happy with the trend of the claims this year.
“The individual stop loss claims are down compared to last year. Last year we had over $580,000 in stop loss claims. That means anything over $50,000 the insurance company will pick it up. Currently, we’re only sitting at $43,000. That is fantastic.”
