Health cost study expands

August 29, 2006

Albany --   Last month Dougherty county officials asked local companies and neighboring counties to participate in a health cost study.  

The study will compare health care costs in Southwest Georgia to those throughout the country, and hopefully identify what can be done to lower those costs. It will cost about $35,000 which will be divided among the city of Albany, the county and the Economic development commission.

Lee County and Crisp County Commissions have both agreed to participate in the study, as has Procter and Gamble, who revealed that its employees paid more for health care in Southwest Georgia that anywhere in the country.
