San Benito ISD To Close On-Site Clinic – “Clinic Drives Higher Costs”


The San Benito Independent School District board of trustees has decided to close their on-site medical clinic this year.

“The clinic is driving costs because of the way the referral system has worked” said the SBISD superintendent.

The San Benito school district’s self-funded health plan is underfunded. Currently the district is reviewing proposals for plan management for plan year 2015-16.. A decision to select a plan administrator is expected in July.

The San Benito ISD self-funded health insurance plan has been under scrutiny for months. Type in “San Benito ISD” in the search box on this blog for previous postings.
