The Lucas County Health Care Cost Containment Board (LCHCCCB), was formed by the Board of Lucas County Commissioners in 1984. The mission of the LCHCCCB is to provide specific recommendations to the Commissioners on strategies to help control the increasing cost of providing employee health care.
Formed in a spirit of labor-management cooperation, the membership is comprised of, but not limited to, members of the teams responsible for negotiating wages and benefits through the collective bargaining process.
The LCHCCCB meets throughout the year to review the financial utilization of the health, prescription drug, dental and life insurance plans, review the latest trends in health care cost containment and wellness programming, and to disseminate information about the plans to the employee population.
The group is also responsible for overseeing the competitive request for proposal (RFP) process in which the insurance industry competes for the County’s business, reviews the responses to the RFPs and prioritizes the allocation of available resources for the negotiation teams. The specific recommendations to the Commissioners are negotiated through the collective bargaining process.
The ultimate objective is to provide employees with benefits that protect them from financial ruin should they become sick, emphasize the merits of wellness and improved patient outcomes and represent the greatest economic value to the taxpayers of Lucas County.
