10/09/2012 UPDATE - As of today we don't have additional rate information from Blue Cross/Blue Shield and further rates from another insurer. We hope to have additional information soon.

10/15/2012 UPDATE - Today we received additional rate information from Blue Cross/Blue Shield and another carrier. We're happy to report our rate increased was reduced by Blue Cross/Blue Shield to 17%. While this rate is still very high at least it's less than the previous quoted rate . Presently, we are working with our benefits broker to construct the best possible plan for our eligible staff members. We've requested additional information from the two carriers. We are hoping to release our plan offering for the 2012-2013 plan year within the next 7 to 10 days.  Thank you for your continued patience with this important manner.
