Report predicts county’s future health-care costs
Union County Supervisor Dennis Brown hit the nail on the head last month when he said in a public meeting there is “no sense insulating people from the reality that health-care costs are going up.”
Proof of that came Monday when Bernie Lowe and Associates — the county’s employee benefit consultant — issued a 16-page report which predicts the county’s health-care costs through 2018.
That report shows — largely because of provisions in health care reform— the cost of the county’s health insurance is expected to rise about 7 percent each year through 2018. What does that mean in terms of actual dollars?
