Grand Jury Report: Healthcare Insurance Waivers

The Grand Jury has issued a report (available here) recommending that the County save money by allowing employees to opt out of healthcare coverage:

Contra Costa County (County) offers a number of healthcare insurance plans to its employees. Permanent employees regularly scheduled to work twenty or more hours per week are required to participate in one of the plans which the County offers. Both the employee and the County pay a portion of the premium cost for the plan chosen by the employee. In those cases where an employee has access to alternative healthcare, the County and the employee would both financially benefit by allowing the employee to waive, or opt-out of, County-provided healthcare coverage. Currently, the County does not offer such waivers to its employees.
