City to pay more for health insurance

PHILADELPHIA, Miss. — PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (AP) — The city of Philadelphia will pay 13 percent more for health insurance in 2013.

The Neshoba Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/11ajhzc) that dollar amount of the increase will be $51,000 for the calendar year.

The city currently pays about $400,000 annually for employee health insurance. The city pays 100 percent of the employee premium while employees pay for the family coverage they want.

Aldermen say the increase will not be passed down to the nearly 100 city employees.

Alderwoman Janice Payne says the city should absorb the increase to help offset the city not being able to grant employee salary increases for 2013.
