ROSEBURG, Ore. -- County Commissioners voted Thursday, on a new Health Insurance program for county workers.
For the most part, officials say things won't change too drastically.
But, they say that premiums went up a big amount this year, so some sacrifices had to be made. Michael Kurtz, the County Human Resources Director, said, "Some shared sacrifice, both from the county's standpoint, but also a shared sacrifice by the employees."
Kurtz says they started looking at insurance back in July, and have been trying to work on something that would make all parties happy.
While the county has to pay a little more for contributions, workers are also paying a little more in and getting slightly less coverage.
