A relatively flat and budget-friendly rate increase in Dyersville, Iowa’s health care plan for city workers was recently approved by the City Council, reports the Dyersville Commercial. In 2021, the council switched from a traditional co-pay-style insurance plan to one with higher deductibles and a health reimbursement arrangement funded by the city. The change is estimated to have saved the city around $182,000.
