    Hannibal School Board tackles rising insurance costs

    Thursday, February 26 2015 5:47 PM EST2015-02-26 22:47:18 GMT
    HANNIBAL, Mo. -- The Hannibal School Board expects a $22,800 increase in insurance costs next year, but Business Manager Rich Stilley said it could have seen a bigger jump without work from the board's Insurance Committee. Stilley said the board needs to insure 120 more district employees -- teachers' aides, food service personnel and other support staff -- under Affordable Care Act requirements. Under the current plan, adding those enrollees would have cost $625,000.
