Deschutes County employees are fighting the County over a proposed increase in health care premiums.   County Administrator Dave Kanner: “Healthcare inflation is running 9% or 10 % a year. And as a result, as our claims costs go up, 9%, 10%, 11%; one year it went up 14%, we’re simply not on a sustainable path.” Kanner says the County is asking employees to pay $65 instead of $50. Union spokesman Yaju Dharmarajah says employees are concerned about future years: “But due to the life of the contract; they’re asking for a five year contract, they are proposing that after next year, they be allowed to move to a percentage-based cost containment for health care.” Employees have want to find out exactly how much the County has spent on health care and say they want to work with the County, but that employees over the years have sacrificed pay for reduced health care. Under the County proposal, employee contribution could increase to $200 a month. The County will meet with the union again April 28th.
