Lafayette Board Votes To Maintain Employee Insurance Costs

LAFAYETTE, LA (AP) — Lafayette Parish School System employees and retirees won't face any changes to their health insurance premiums or deductibles next year.

         The Advocate’s Marsha Sills reports the school board voted 7-2 Thursday night to retain current premiums and deductible rates, passing on another proposal that would have cost the school system only half as much.

         But the board will revisit the issue for 2017.

         The monthly premium is $149 for individual coverage for active and retired employees not on Medicare, $87 for a retiree on Medicare and $608 for family coverage.

         The annual deductible is $950 for individuals and $2,850 for families, with a potential reduction of the deductible for those who earn a $250 wellness credit.
