Neighboring counties hear about benefit rate increases

Representatives from the Texas Association of Counties (TAC) traveled from Austin recently to speak to Fisher and Kent county commissioners about increases in rates for employee benefits.

TAC was able to get benefits renewals out to counties about two weeks early this year, good news for counties as they approach finalizing their budgets for the upcoming fiscal year. TAC has spent the last two years training in order to move through the system fast enough to get the renewals out this early. The overall goal is to get the renewals out another two weeks earlier in years to come.

Kathy Davenport is the Employee Benefits Consultant for the Northwest Territory for TAC. She presented information to the Kent commissioners while her colleague, Ernesto Martinez spoke to the Fisher County Court about insurance rates for 2018.
