RATE INCREASE: Insurance rates for town employees go up

November 26, 2012


CHURUBUSCO — At a short meeting Wednesday, town council members learned of an inevitable rate increase for insurance.

Council member Mark Conrad explained the Physicians Health Plan (PHP) rate increase and discussed what the change would mean for town employees.

Physicians Health Plan is an insurance group provider that provides town employees with health care coverage.

The proposed PHP increase would be 17 percent. Council President Frank Kessler said in light of the increase, the town would most likely keep the current insurance plan.

“We have looked at other options,” Kessler said. “Unfortunately, a 17 percent increase is not unheard of in recent years.”
