From the summary:
In 2006, ICMA conducted a survey of local governments to determine the goals, needs, and concerns they have regarding their employee health insurance plans. CIGNA sponsored the survey as part of its ongoing commitment to provide assistance to local governments on employee health care issues. The survey was fielded as one of the initiatives of the ICMA Health Care Advisory Group, which was launched in 2006 to help local government managers assess and address what has become, for many, one of the biggest costs in their budget. More than 2,200 local governments responded to the survey. The following is a summary of the survey results.
