11-09-2012 |

This 2012 survey of over 2,330 local units of government nationwide in Cobalt Community Research's "National Study of Local Government Health and OPEB Funding Strategies" found that, compared to 2011, "7% fewer local units of government ... provide health coverage to their active employees. Governments who do provide health coverage are paying a slightly smaller share of the premium. Fewer local governments are self-insuring. ...[There is] a significant drop in the percentage of local governments who provide health insurance for retired employees, especially in the Midwest. ...[T]here was a slight decrease in the percentage of local governments who are fully or partially prefunding their retiree health liabilities."
