The Village of Essex Junction pays their eligible (full-time) employees
50% of the savings if the employee is covered under their spouse's
insurance.  The employee receives the payment once a month in a special
payroll.  The 50% is based on what would be paid if the employee was
covered through the Village, i.e., if they have a family, it would be
50% of the family premium, if single, it would be 50% of the single
premium, etc.

How many towns offer their employees a cash payment if the employee is
not utilizing the town's health care benefit and are covered by another
(i.e. - spouse's coverage).   
  
We are also interested in the amount of the payment and how it is
determined. 
  
Thank you in advance for you time. 
Sincerely,
