Insurance to spike for some Birmingham City retirees

Monthly insurance premiums for Birmingham city retirees could more than double this September.

Notices went out Friday for retirees under age 65. For example, under the single coverage plan, the monthly rate would go from $164 to $356.

A group representing some retirees tells ABC 33/40 the spike will hurt those on a fixed income.

Members plan to sound off on concerns Tuesday at the Birmingham City Council meeting.
