Circuit Court Clerk wants LC Board to reject new health insurance proposal

The passage of a new health insurance plan by the Lake County Board this week drew warnings from the circuit court clerk and the union representing employees in that department to reconsider part of the plan or face an unfair labor practice charge.

Circuit Court Clerk Erin Cartwright Weinstein called on the board to reject the plan because many of her employees had been encouraged to open a Health Savings Account (HSA) as part of their insurance coverage because it would cost the county less.

Under the new proposal, the county’s contribution to the HSA would be reduced by $50 for single coverage and $100 for family coverage for the second year in a row. The county presently pays $1,200 for single coverage and $2,400 for family.
