Kirksville R-III Works to Finalize New Insurance Plan

The Kirksville R-III School District is working to finalize its new health care plan. For years, the district had covered all costs. The new program will feature a primary health insurance company for the staff. According to school officials, the district is still paying for the employee’s individual premiums – and will be paying more. Also, under this plan, all groups except those purchasing insurance for their entire family will see a decrease from the monthly premium they pay currently. Late last month, the Kirksville School Board held a special meeting to preview the plan with school board members. Meetings were then held with staff to discuss the plan ahead of the November enrollment period.
