A Resolution to Adopt the Employee Health Care Plans and Rates for Fiscal Year 2010

Topic Description:

On February 26, 2009, the Joint Personnel Committee was presented the Medical Insurance and Dental Insurance plan design and rate changes for FY 2010. 

The new plan year proposes benefit changes to one of the four medical plans.  It is recommended that the KeyCare 300 PPO plan be replaced with the Healthkeepers 10 Open Access HMO plan.  No changes are proposed for the two dental plan offerings. 

The attached rate structures are recommended for approval.  The medical plan proposes increases ranging from $0.27 to $8.83 per month to full-time permanent employees.  The dental plan proposes to increase both the employer and employee contributions by 9% to equally share the increase in premiums by Delta Dental of Virginia.  Rate changes are recommend for special categories as shown on the attached documents.
