PURVIS — Lamar County Board of Supervisors has received a presentation on the potential impact of the Affordable Care Act.
Officials say the county could be paying 10 percent to 15 percent more because of fees and taxes associated with health care law.
The Hattiesburg American reports that could mean an increase of $350,000 to $400,000 in 2014-15 for the county to provide coverage to nearly 300 employees.
Insurance agents Michelle Fuller and Rick Maddox presented informational packages to the supervisors, which addressed the potential ramifications with the county’s health insurance provider, United Health Care.
