Our committee chair received an email yesterday from our council indicating that yearly insurance costs per scout/adult were rising effective 2020 from $1 to $12. From the email council sent: “For more than 15 years, the council has subsidized insurance costs and absorbed all increases, holding the per-registered-member rate at only $1, which is far below the actual cost”
I’m curious as to what other units/councils are paying for insurance. I also wonder if these insurance costs are a result of some the situations portrayed in recent media stories with regards to lawsuits against BSA. In general, these insurance costs seem excessive as most people are already paying medical & auto insurance and presumably the charter organization for the unit also has insurance.
