Other State Health Care Plans Better Than SD

Other State Health Care Plans Better Than SD
PIERRE, SD -

Public employees in South Dakota receive more valuable coverage than their privately- and federally-insured counterparts on average, but a new study says most other states in the nation have richer plans for their civil servants.

The report by Pew Charitable Trust shows the richness of health care plans in each state by looking at the "actuarial value," or the average percentage of health care costs paid for by the plan.

State health plans nationwide paid 92 percent of a typical enrollee's health care costs last year on average. In South Dakota, health plans paid 89 percent of health care costs

While better than plans offered by most private employers, public employees in only eight other states had to pay a greater share of their health care costs on average.
