City health savings disappoint Manchester officials
“We were hoping the plan change would save money,” said Guy Beloin, the city’s assistant finance director.
Beloin told the committee that claims data had to be further analyzed to determine whether the higher than anticipated health costs were being driven by city employees getting more treatment or by higher costs for care.
Later on Tuesday, the full Board of Mayor and Aldermen voted to move forward a proposal for the city to hire a $48,000-per-year wellness coordinator who would provide guidance to employees on nutrition, exercise and receiving preventive medical care. The board voted, without discussion, to send the proposal to the Committee on Human Resources.
