99-492 AMEND THE BUDGET THAT THE COUNTY SELF-INSURE MEDICAL INSURANCE FOR BOTH THE COUNTY’S WORKFORCE AND COUNTY RETIREES, BEGINNING APRIL 1, 2000

The Administrator/Controller recommends, moved by Gill, supported by Baade, to amend the Budget. Medical insurance rates are anticipated to increase by eight percent or more in the County’s next fiscal contract period which begins April 1, 2000. It is proposed that the County self-insure medical insurance for both the County’s workforce and County retirees, beginning April 1, 2000. The County would hire a third party administrator (TPA) to administer the program. Benefits to the employees would be substantially/relatively equal to the current plans and be subject to applicable collective bargaining agreements and law. The benefits to the County for this strategic move are a one-time cash flow advantage by the delay between the service delivery and payment to the provider and a reduction in the cost of administering the program. Anticipated savings to the General Fund for FY2000 are expected to be $30,273, mainly because this action would only impact the budget for one-half of the fiscal year. More significant savings are anticipated for future years with the goal to hold health care cost increases to the inflation rate.
