The Delaware County commissioners agreed on Monday, Aug. 27, to educate the county’s employees on the various health insurance benefit options before deciding on a plan.

Vicki Cossart, Human Resources Director addressed the commissioners on the benefits and costs of three different plans.

“The best plan works efficiently at the least cost,” Cossart said.

“I think we should have an option,” said Martin Kirk, District 3 county commissioner.

The commissioners also agreed to poll the employees on the plan they would like to see implanted.

Cossart said around 40 percent of the county’s employees use their health savings account.

In financial business, the commissioners approved paying a Tulsa County Juvenile Bureau $2,115.75 invoice and a $860.95 Office of Juvenile Affairs invoice.
