Kandiyohi County eyes group insurance program with 13 other Minn. counties


WILLMAR -- Kandiyohi County is working with 13 other regional counties on a proposal to develop a pilot program to provide their own group insurance plan for delivering public medical health care.

Called the Southern Prairie Health Purchasing Alliance, the plan would allow the 14 counties to be self-insured when it comes to processing Medical Assistance coverage.

Currently, that insurance is provided by the state programs Blue Plus and UCare.
