Alabama State employers will pay more for health insurance next year.
The move, made by the state employee’s insurance board, is being implemented to make up a projected $36 million deficit. Some premiums have been raised and co-pays for urgent care are going up as well as costs for emergency room visits and outpatient surgeries.
The board also allocated about $11 million from reserves. The changes go into effect on Jan. 1.
Currently, active state employees pay $15 a month for a single coverage and $250 for family coverage.
