Tulare County Approves Premium Hike for Employees
On Tuesday, the Tulare County Board of Supervisors approved a recommended health insurance premium increase of 4.9% for most county workers. The increase would require county workers with no dependents on a zero-deductible PPO by Anthem to pay nearly $33 more monthly and families on the same plan to pay slightly less than $100 more monthly. Fresno County supervisors are expected to approve the same rate increase for Fresno county workers next week.
