Admistrators at the Litchfield Elementary School District (LESD) are looking for ways to maintain a healthy staff while saving money in these tough budget times to keep more money in the classroom and save tax dollars. Recently, Wendy Qualls, the Business Manager for LESD, took advantage of the group savings available through the Valley Schools Employee Benefits Trust (VSEBT) which allows government entities, including school districts to purchase insurance cheaper through group contracts. LESD was able to save 15% of their vision costs while keeping the same provider, VSP. Not only did they save money, but the benefits under the plan were increased and they received a two year rate guarantee.
Congratulations to Litchfield Elementary School District for this solid move and thinking outside the box. VSEBT is part of the Valley Schools Management Group of programs administered by Tom Boone. This piece of news was shared with Arizona Health Spot by Patrick Dittman of VSMG.
