Board Of Supervisors Approve Health Plan Change
Brad Reiman, from Bearance Management Group, spoke to the board and presented the details of the health plan change. The county needed to make a health plan change from a third party administrator (TPA) to a First Administrators, Inc. (FAI) agreement with Wellmark. Wellmark no longer does third party plans. The change will come into effect on Nov. 1 and will continue until July 2014.
Watch the full conversation:
The board also unanimously designated Brian McMillan to be in charge of the county’s web hosting services. Supervisor Mike Vander Molen said McMillan charges $50 an hour and that his work would not exceed $500. Vander Molen also said other counties, such as Marion County, pay $6,000 a year for web hosting services. A figure he called “expensive.”
Lastly, the board unanimously approved a contract for pavement replacement in regards to Project FM-CO62(84)-55-62. In a separate motion, the board unanimously approved the contractor’s bond.
