KISD to cover employee insurance peak with federal funds | education

Thousands of employees at Killeen Independent School District won’t be paying increased health insurance premiums this year, but district officials say the “anomaly” won’t last forever.

In the absence of board member JoAnn Purser, the Killeen ISD School Board on Tuesday approved the district’s 2023 employee health plans 6-0, choosing to fund the increase in first-year employee health insurance premiums with $5.9 million to the federal government -Coronavirus Aid to Balance ESSER Fund.

Insurance advisor Tad Dorroh of BKCW and Stephanie Peterson of Milliman in Dallas advised Killeen Independent School District board members during an Aug. 16 workshop on health insurance options.
