Kansas state employee health insurance costs to rise

KSAL StaffAugust 13, 2016

State documents show that thousands of Kansas government employees would face rising health insurance premiums under fee schedules developed for 2017.

The State Employee Health Plan administered by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment applies to workers throughout state government and includes people employed at public universities and colleges.

Under basic health policies available through Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas and Aetna, monthly rates for individual policies with low- and high-deductible plans would rise 9 percent. The monthly cost of health insurance for state workers in the employee-and-children plans would also increase 9 percent.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://j.mp/2bb8J1i) rates for health insurance policies for full-time workers also increased during the 2016 year.
