01-19-2016 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #27


Title
Authorization to Issue Request For Proposal (RFP) for Employee Health Clinic Vendor and Clinic Portable

Discussion

The Office of Employee Benefits and Risk Management acting under the Board's direction as assigned during a Board workshop held on August 11, 2015, engaged Willis Consultation Services to complete a feasibility study for the district to open and operate its own employee health clinics for staff and their dependents to utilize for their own medical needs.  The attached feasibility study completed by Willis Consultation Services reveals that the cost for operating these clinics in the first year will likely be covered by most if not all of the savings generated to the Board's health insurance trust fund through employees and their dependents migrating their current medical care from current local health care providers to the care offered through the district operated clinics.  The same study indicates that in each of the subsequent years this migration is likely to continue and increase to the point that the district is likely to achieve a savings in overall medical care cost projected in years two and three.  In addition, the study finds that the on-site clinic will produce longer-term benefits that warrant continued consideration such as employee satisfaction, more aligned employee wellness activities with medical providers, reduced medical cost trends, etc.



Recommendation

Grant the Superintendent authority to issue two “Requests for Proposals” seeking a medical care vendor that will oversee clinic operations and its staff and the procurement of at least one or more portable clinic plants for the vendor to utilize to provide these services for staff.
