This year the trend has reversed; claims are down significantly.<br /><br />Through the first seven months of the current fiscal year, claims are about $350,000 lower than at the same time last year.<br /><br />Finance Committee Chair Alice Henry is breathing a sigh of relief.<br /><br />She says, &ldquo;Last year was such an anomaly with our costs being much higher than average. And so it looks like it&#39;s kind of equilibrating and getting back to more of an average year.&rdquo;<br /> Mon, 06 Aug 2012 13:51:42 +0000 James Lenz 19442 at http://tspr.org McDonough County Health Insurance Healthy Bushnell Responds to Employees Complaints http://tspr.org/post/bushnell-responds-employees-complaints <p>Bushnell city employees are saying the city did not tell them how much this year&#39;s health insurance coverage would cost them.<br /><br />This year&#39;s plan provides a $500 deductible.
