Harrisburg to save $300,000 on new health care agreement

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

The Harrisburg School District is going to be saving a decent chunk of money on its health care coverage.

Chief Recovery Officer Gene Veno and Business Manager Deb Miller announced Monday night that an agreement had been reached with Highmark and United Concordia.

The insurers were willing to provide a three-year plan that contains concessions from vendors and will save the district $100,000 a year for the next three years.

"It was a wonderful surprise," said Miller. "They really valued the relationship they had with the district for a number of years."

"They also indicated they want to get more involved with other in-kind programs and our foundation," said Veno. "We're kind of excited about the future of that."

The move to cut health care costs is part of Veno's recovery plan.

Veno also said the district is moving ahead with it's sale of the parcel of land that used to be the site of the old middle school, and he said a church has stepped forward to ask about leasing the Hamilton facility.
