Lee Co. commission makes changes to insurance

LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Lee County commissioners had a change of heart Monday evening.

Last month, they picked a company to handle re-insurance and to cover cost overruns on employee health claims.

They called a special meeting late Monday to change to a subsidiary of Blue Cross Blue Shield that handles their normal insurance.

Leaders decided the initial company might come with added risk because it's fairly new.

The change won't cost taxpayers any extra and will not affect employee health plans.
