NV state workers' share of insurance above average

Posted: Updated:
  RENO, Nev. (AP) -- A new study shows Nevada state employees pay for a significantly larger share of their health insurance premiums compared with the portion of the costs other states bill their employees.

Nevada is one of 11 states where the employee covers at least one-fourth of the cost of their premium -- 26 percent by the worker and 74 percent by the state.

The report released Tuesday by the Pew Charitable Trusts and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation says the average among all states is 16 percent charged to the employee, 84 percent to the employer.


Hawaii charges its state employees the biggest share -- 42 percent.

On the other end, North Dakota and Ohio cover all premiums for individual employees. Eleven other states cover at least 90 percent.
