The City of Bend Employee Association has joined Bend Firefighters and Police in taking control of their health care needs. Bend City Human Resources Manager Rob Duvalle  says with soaring insurance and health care costs, employees "saw the writing on the wall" regarding the City budget: "We can try and be proactive as we all chose to do in this recent situation and try and get in front of the game. And so do in a manner when all the parties are in control of their destiny and taking an active part in managing it towardshopefully a reduction in the increase in premiums for the employee and for the employer in the future." Duvalle says COBEA has agreed to a new high- deductible insurance plan that has a focus in preventative health. Duvalle says as of September first all 450 city employees will be part of the new insurance plan.
