What’s at stake for U.Va.?


The monthly premium for a single employee in the U.Va. Health Plan is $17. The amount was incorrect in an article in the Dec. 6 issue.

Also, a portion of the text was missing from that article due to a production error.
The article should have read:

The benefits included in the plan have been amended slightly but are still rated above the state’s premiere Key Advantage Plan by actuaries and consultants.

“We pay less and get more,” said Linda Way-Smith, director of employee benefits. “I would stack our health plan against just about anyone.”

The total projected cost of covering 24,000 University employees and dependents under the plan will be $79 million in 2003. With a self-insured plan, administrators can only fund the claims through the premiums collected.
