Employee Benefits

Health and Welfare Open Enrollment 2017/2018

There will be no rate increases for 2017/18 for all PPO plans. In addition, the Basic Plan has been enriched as the deductible has been reduced to $1,000 per person and $2,000 for family, and the coinsurance has been reduced to 30%. There will also be no rate increases for our dental and vision plans. This rate lock is partly the result of a multi-year effort of work by the JPA (with LTCC representative participation) to better contain costs, renegotiate better medical provider contracts, and be more efficient. 

To compare the information for all four, see the Benefits at a Glance.
