Of the five health insurers which responded to Wilson County’s recent request for proposals, only one actually submitted a bid.
During the Oct. 22 meeting of the Wilson County Commissioners Court, the commissioners were set to take action related to the county’s fiscal year 2013 health insurance. The county provides individual coverage to each of its approximately 160 employees.
Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney opened the bid packets and read the information into the record. Aetna declined to submit a quote because of “ongoing conditions,” and United Healthcare cited “future medical risks” in its refusal, according to a letter from Nora Rodriguez to Don Wallace of Hartman Insurance. Nippon Life Benefits also refused to bid.
Quinney said the county also received a response from Lauren Henry of the Texas Association of Counties (TAC), which refused to give the county a bid on becoming part of the TAC employee benefit pool because of “ongoing high claims.”
This left the commissioners no choice but to accept the only bid, which came from its current insurer, Humana. Wallace said the county will see a reduction in its monthly premiums by renewing with Humana. During the 2012 fiscal year, the county paid $797.51 per month, per employee. The per-employee cost will be reduced to $757 per month for 2013. The policy and its $1,500-per- employee deductible remain unchanged.
Commissioner Larry Wiley, one of a group of county employees who sat on an insurance committee, said, “We looked for all sorts of alternatives and did everything we could.”
Also during the meeting, the commissioners presented a proclamation to former County Auditor Ernest “Ray” Wolff, who retired in August.
***In attendance: Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney and commissioners Albert Gamez Jr., Paul Pfeil, Ricky Morales, and Larry Wiley; Wilson County Sheriff Joe D.
