Camden ordinance could cut spending on insurance costs

    Camden took a step toward saving Tuesday night when the city council introduced an insurance pricing ordinance.

    The Best Price Insurance Purchasing ordinance, supported by the nonprofit Citizens Campaign, would require the city use a transparent and competitive process in pursuing health insurance and ensuring that brokers be hired on a flat-fee basis.

    Three bids will be the minimum requirement, and brokers will be paid by the city, not a health insurance company.
