Dayton Health Plan: Dayton City Council met Monday and heard a presentation from the city’s insurance advisor service, IPS. The presentation was on purchasing employee health benefits for the coming fiscal year. IPS’s Julian Fontana recommended Dayton City Council stay with their current employee benefits provider BlueCross BlueShield of Texas. Mr. Fontana said renewing the city’s coverage with BlueCross BlueShield would mean an approximately 5% increase over the current health care premiums. Dayton council followed that recommendation and renewed their contract with BlueCross BlueShield for employee health benefits and also renewed their contract with the Lincoln Financial Company for employee dental and life insurance coverage. Dayton council will discuss how much of the 5% premium increase will be born by the city and how much will be passed on to employees in the form of co-pay at a budget workshop scheduled for August 8.
