Hagerstown will continue to provide health insurance to its employees through a partially self-funded arrangement for fiscal 2012-13, according to city officials.
As a way to control costs, no changes to medical or dental coverages are being recommended. The city Health Care Committee will continue to monitor and evaluate cost-effective benefit plans for employees.
Under the current union contract, employee and retiree premiums will remain unchanged for the next fiscal year, which begins July 1.
The committee also proposed a change to the city’s contribution to medical coverage for employees enrolled in the Plus Medical Plan.
