The Shelbina City Council approved a motion to switch its health insurance from Anthem to Federated during Tuesday night’s council meeting at the Shelbina City Hall.

   After a long discussion, the council approved a motion to switch from its current insurance carrier Anthem, to Federated Insurance. The City has been with Anthem, with local agent Jeff Werr of Hawkins Insurance of Shelbina.
   City Clerk Tim Lacy said that he had talked to Werr and he had stated that he wouldn’t be able to offer much more than what he had brought to the table. The plan with Federated would be an estimated $30,000 savings for the City.
   Council members were torn between the savings and the convenience of working with the local business. It was stated that the employees at Hawkins Insurance have always been more than helpful and if there was ever a problem they knew they could go across the street and it would be solved.
   Councilman John Smith said that it was quite a bit of savings and would be hard not to consider the switch.
   After more discussion Smith made a motion to go with Federated Insurance. That motion passed with by a 4-0 vote.
   Mayor Al Dimmitt said he felt this is something that needed to be up for bids on an annual basis. They said that next year they plan to bid it out next April and have it ready to go sometime in May.
