In the Matter of Benefits

Jon Conrad warns of the effect of “the unabated nationwide rise in health-care costs” on the College’s faculty/staff medical plans. Preliminary figures for 2002 indicate an increase likely of at least 35% for Moravian’s health plans. This is almost twice last year’s hike. The Human Resources Office is in the process of reviewing the existing plan design, alternate plans and cost-saving measures. Questions/comments/concerns: jconrad@moravian.edu or Ext.1527.
