Texas School District Continues Deficit Spending On Health Plan

The Donna Independent School District (DISD) in deep South Texas continues to under fund their self-funded health plan. In a competitive RFP process last year the district moved their self-funded health plan administration from Blue Cross to United HealthCare. However, the change in plan administrators have not shown any savings to date, although there is a “shared savings” fee paid to the administrator. Try explaining that to the boys in the domino parlor.
