MISSION—The Mission School Board on April 10 approved a 2.75 percent rate increase to renew the district’s health insurance plan with Humana Health Insurance for the 2013-2014 year.
MCISD Coordinator of Risk Management/Employee Benefits Sylvia Cruz explained that Humana had presented a higher rate – an increase of 3.9 percent – to the district’s insurance committee a week earlier. The district’s health insurance renewal date is on Oct. 1, 2013.
Humana representative Vanesia Adkins explained the increase is a representation of the increase in taxes that has to be paid due to the Health Care Reform Act.
