GFOA White Paper Gives Tips for Containing Health Care Costs

The cost of employee health-care benefits has increased rapidly over recent years, contributing to the budgetary stress that governments are already facing as a result of declining or stagnant revenues and escalating costs in other areas.

While public employers are under pressure to contain employee benefit costs, they are also motivated to provide benefits that help them maintain a healthy and productive workforce and attract the best employees to public service.  GFOA, with a grant from Colonial Life, conducted independent research to identify the most innovative and effective strategies local governments can employ to meet the dual goals of containing costs and managing the quality of employee health-care benefits. Our study included a survey of GFOA members, case studies, and secondary sources. The findings and resulting publication were reviewed and approved by an independent panel of GFOA members who are experienced in employee benefit management.
