City of Quincy looking at employee health care options

Posted:
 Quincy city leaders are looking at more options to cut healthcare coverage costs without cutting services.

Mayor Kyle Moore says the city is currently taking bids for a new provider, while at the same time taking bids for a member health clinic to serve city employees and their family members.

Moore says it's all part of a plan to keep costs down.

"The city's healthcare costs have risen over the last four years by 45 percent, and so when you're talking about a budget buster, it's healthcare costs," Moore said. "So that's one of the reasons we're reevaluating our group health insurance and seeing if we can add some type of component like a group health clinic."

A decision on whether to go ahead with the clinic will be made sometime this fall.
