PUBLIC EMPLOYEE INSURANCE
W.Va. public workers to see no premium increase under plan tentatively approved by board

State and public school employees covered by West Virginia's public employee insurance plan likely will see no increases in their health insurance premiums next year.
Ted Cheatham is the insurance agency's executive director. He says the premium freeze is possible because of less-than-projected expenses and strong investment earnings during the past year.
A final vote on the freeze will be taken in December after a series of public hearings around the state.
