County employees could see increase in health insurance costs

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County employees could soon see an increase in health insurance costs.

Commissioners were told today there have been a high number of claims that are 75-thousand dollars or more, so employee premiums and deductibles could rise

"Our concern and always has been the impact this will have on our employees. We have to be very very sensitive about what they are able to bear," says John Hayes, who represents District Two.

Commissioners will have a work session in the coming weeks to finalize any changes
