Middlesex County (NJ) starts program aimed at cutting healthcare costs, improving employees' health
About 100 employees covered by the Middlesex County Joint Health Insurance Fund will participate in pilot program next year aimed at improving their health and reducing the county's health care costs. Officials say that if the program is successful, it will be expanded to include all county employees and the four other members of the fund — Middlesex County College, the county Board of Social Services, the Middlesex County Improvement Authority and the county's Mosquito Control Commission. The fund handles health care for the county and its other participating agencies — a form of self-insurance.
