KCPD commissioners want an explanation from Blue Cross

Members of the Kansas City Board of Police Commissioners were contrite yesterday morning, admitting that they swallowed some barely believable numbers without any question.

“I’m a little bit embarrassed at the decision we made,” Commissioner Karl Zobrist said.

Earlier this month, the commissioners were told that cutting domestic partner benefits would save KCPD more than $421,000 on annual health insurance costs — a huge score in a tight budget that will barely keep the current number of cops on the street.

But that proposed savings has raised plenty of questions. Yesterday, the commissioners vowed to get to the bottom of it.
