Broome County Executive Jason Garnar stated “The Alliance has helped thousands of retirees in our region to keep the health coverage they’re used to while also saving money on premiums. Using the Alliance’s ability to leverage collective buying power, we have saved millions of dollars for municipalities and school districts. We’re proud to be a model for the State and hope that others will join this effort.”
NYSAC President Marte Sauerbrey said “Tioga County joined the Alliance last year and is projected to save $3.2 Million, with a Shared Services match, over the next three years. It just made sense for NYSAC to partner with Broome County and offer this benefit to other counties, towns, villages, cities, and school districts. The more local governments who participate in the program, the more savings, and the more benefit there will be to our taxpayers. It is really a win, win, win program.” Sauerbrey is chairwoman of the Tioga County Legislature.
