An old saying goes there is strength in numbers. In New Mexico, the teachers and school officials decide to apply this concept and get inexpensive public school insurance. The same is true for any big organization which considers the inflating cost of monthly insurance rates and the increasing cost of health care. The New Mexico Public School System was the pioneer in public school insurance. Colleges, public school regions, and charter schools were included in this classification. The intention was not provide funding for themselves but to serve as a buyer for the entire group. This allows any employs to get benefits and coverage for any damages. Albuquerque was the exception.
Members divide the costs of health, vision, and disability. The health plans are normally self-insured. One third of the premiums are subtracted from payrolls. Based on the price of other plans, it should help employs save big on insurance. The health care plans are commonly insured solo. This implies the group is responsible for the plan design and the allotment of premiums. The premiums will take care of claim revenue the group may have filed against them. This is the reason 10% is put toward overhead costs.
Public school insurance has been successful for the school community in New Mexico. If you think about the increasing cost of medical insurance and the monthly rates attached, it comes as no surprise those like the group in New Mexico are banding together. It is without doubt the health care costs will proceed to increase which mean more groups like these will apply the strength in numbers concept.
