Riverside joins insurance consortium

Riverside Local Schools Board of Education members approved in a unanimous vote at their Tuesday evening meeting a measure to join the Logan County School Employee Consortium, following a similar move by the Benjamin Logan Board of Education the previous evening.

Beginning Jan. 1, the district will be a self-insured entity with county schools, except Bellefontaine City Schools.

The move is projected to provide a cost savings in insurance premiums while providing the same level of coverage for employees. Anthem will be the administrator of the multi-district plan.

“We’re looking at a significant savings to our employees and the insurance plan,” Treasurer Jennifer Blackford said. “This is a plan the superintendents and treasurers of the county schools have been working on for about 12 months.”
