Enabling/Regulating Authority


Background Discussion

During FY16, the County incurred multiple high dollar, catastrophic, and unusual medical cases resulting in higher than normal claim payments.  That, paired with the increasing costs related to healthcare and our aging population of members, contributed to higher claim expenditures for FY 16 than initially projected and budgeted.  Staff requests authorization to transfer $4,610,000 from Reserves in the Health Self Insurance Fund for medical, dental, and prescription claim payments through September 2016.

Approximately $1.2 million of the additional claims costs were recovered through our stop-loss insurance policy.  The Health Self Insurance Fund has sufficient Reserves for Medical Claims for this transfer.
