Pulaski County continues to look into employee health insurance options. The county commissioners agreed Monday to issue a request for proposals from insurance brokers. They also agreed to advertise the request in South Bend and Indianapolis newspapers.
Auditor Laura Wheeler explained that the language had been reviewed by County Attorney Kevin Tankersley, and that companies will be asked to turn their proposals in before the June 10 joint council and commissioners meeting.
Some county officials believe changing insurance could lead to significant cost savings, but it could also mean big changes in coverage, depending on specifications.
