OEA Insurance Info

The Ogden District Insurance Committee met Tuesday night and agreed to send a proposal to the three employee groups for negotiations. The School Board will help pay for the increases in insurance this year. The district will pay 86% and the employees will pay 14% of the premium. Singles will see an increase of 6.64, Couples- 15.02, and Families - 21.50 (before flexing the premium which gives up to a 20% savings) The committee was able to maintain coverage without changes. This is much different than the possible huge increases that we were facing with 15% increases in premiums. The committee did a great job in keeping increases low and maintaining coverage. The base dental program will increase by .54 per month-single, 1.12 per couple, and 1.94 for family coverage.

The OEA Negotiations team will meet with the district June 1 to continue talks.
