June 15, 2014

The renewal of the hospitalization plan for Fox Township employees was recently approved by the Fox Township Supervisors making employees responsible for their deductible if they plan to continue with the existing plan.
This new change, suggested by Keller, will kick in July 3.
Scott Surra explained that plan is "grandfathered" under the new law in that if an employee supposedly likes their plan they can keep it for another year and it does not necessarily meet all the criteria under the Affordable Care Act.
