last I heard some co. employees could get insurance for $10.00 month.cheap. didnt mind it until co. employees take more paid holidays off than anyone else.that can be their new perk.city needs to drop bcbs to.$17000 taxes spent a year for one employee to much.

I heard that the County was able to find much better insurance with the same benefits for far less money than their contract with BCBS. I heard it saved the County over $300,000. This might help keep some jobs in the area.

The county commissioners were sold a bill of goods by a snake oil salesman, friends with some county higher ups. Rumor has it there were meetings with the salesman and some of the county folks, not sure if there was any open meeting violations but Charlotte has her fingers in it for sure and they'll need to hire some of Charlotte's kinfolk to run the new plan. Somebody better check with Allen county, that has the same outfit running their health insurance, and ask why their premiums to employees went up to $800/month after only 9 months. Nobody from MG bothered to check any other places that has this unknown outfit from Great Bend running their health insurance. Blue Cross was forced to raise premiums 23% because of Obamacare, less than many places that will see 100% increases. The county employees were thrown under the bus in an underhanded way by the commissioners, Charlotte, and Shawn. Maybe you need to call them at home or work and let them know what you think.

Blue Cross was not "forced" to raise premiums. They've been gouging people for years and years. They ALWAYS find an excuse to raise premiums.

Something needs to be made clear, no 1 has had to pay more BECAUSE
of Obamacare, insurance companies are covering their asses is so still make obscene profits after they finally have to provide the coverage and benefits to US the CUSTOMER, that they should have been providing ALL ALONG! Self insuring will suck for everyone, Except perhaps local doctors in Independence For the county. Very sad Indeed.
