School Employees Health Care Board

Implications for Ohio’s Public Schools and School Employees

2 billion dollars
2 Billion Dollars
  • This figure represents approximately 13.5% of all education expenditures in the State of Ohio.
  • Health care is the fastest growing cost driver for local school districts, with health care cost increases far outpacing inflation.
  • Rising health care costs inhibit our ability to best serve the needs of Ohio’s students and have negative economic impact on school employees.

genesis of school employee health care board
Genesis of School Employee Health Care Board
  • Am. Sub. HB 66 (2005 Budget Bill): established 9-member School Employees Health Care Board and 18-member Advisory Committee to investigate the feasibility of a statewide health insurance pool for public education employees and create a compliance plan by the end of 2006.
  • No pooling requirement could be implemented, though, without further action by the legislature.

  • Key Recommendation: Establishment of five mandatory regional insurance pools
