Wake County Commissioners have free health care

At least at the time we released this report, sitting Wake County Commissioners did not have to pay any health insurance premiums. Instead, taxpayers covered the entire monthly charge.

I wonder if Wake County Commissioners still pay no premium. What about county employees, do they contribute to their premium?

Should commissioners really be working to erode coverage for average workers while paying no premium for their own insurance?

    Wake County Manager David Cooke changed the county’s self-insurance plan. The plan will continue to pay for abortions in cases of incest, rape or danger to the mother’s life. Coverage for elective abortions has existed since 1999 at least.
