BE IT REMEMBERED, that the White County Commissioners held a special meeting on Thursday, November 16, 2017, in the White County Building, 2nd – floor Commissioners’ Conference Room, beginning at 8:00 a.m.

 

Commissioners present were: President John C. Heimlich, Vice President Steve Burton, and Commissioner David Diener. Also present was White County Auditor Gayle Rogers and the Commissioners’ Assistant Donya Tirpak.

 

Commissioner Heimlich called the meeting to order.

 

HEALTH INSURANCE RENEWAL FOR 2018

HR Deputy Leah Hull said that in the original renewal that was approved at the last meeting, the information that was given to her was not correct. When the summary of benefits came in from Anthem, the benefits have changed.

 

Mrs. Hull explained that the original plan was not compliant with the ACA guidelines for an HSA plan. Even though we don’t have an HSA and we have an HRA, Anthem will not give us a plan that isn’t compliant with HSA.

 

The minimum deductible for a single plan, employee only, must be $2,700 and the minimum deductible for a family plan must be $5,400, according to the ACA guidelines.

 

The original approved plan was:

Deductible Employee $2,600

Deductible Family $5,200

No co-pays after deductible is met, except for prescriptions. Prescription Rx will go with this.

 

Mrs. Hull proposed the following options:

 

First option:

Deductible Employee $2,700

Deductible Family $5,400

No co-pays after deductible is met, except for prescriptions. Prescription Rx will go with this.

No change to HRA

 

Second option:

Deductible Employee $2,700

Deductible Family $5,400

Co Pay starts after deductible is met.

Mrs. Hull proposed raising the HRA $100 for Employee, and $200 for Family.

 

Mrs. Hull recommended the commissioners go with the first option.

 

  • Commissioner Diener made a motion to go with the first option, seconded by Commissioner Burton. Vote: Unanimous

There being no further business to come before the board, the commissioners adjourned their meeting.
