Once you hit that per claim you re done and you dont pay any More you re at a comfortable level with reserves Charlesworth said. The count yes been with Blue Cross Blue shield for several years. The question was whether to Transfer the full risk by continuing As is or assume some risk. The county will budget $ 3.984 million for the pro Gram though it expects its costs to be Between $ 3.5 and $ 3.7 million based on historic claims.

He suggested the county look at setting up some sort of incentive program such As Matching a certain amount going into a savings account or providing seed Money to open one. Employees have done Well but we need to keep educating them on How it works Harris said. I dont understand it All but i like the concept said commissioner Brad Dillon. I do support it.
