Employees of South Bend Community Schools may soon have an on-site health clinic where they could receive medical care.
The school board is considering opening the facility and obtaining a new insurance carrier.
Details are still being discussed, but the district's human resources director said it is necessary to hold down premiums.
An on-site clinic could save money by reducing the number of expensive emergency room visits and promoting wellness.
Still, while workers could see lower premiums, they might face higher out-of-pocket expenses.
Officials say many governmental agencies are moving to on-site clinics as health insurance costs rise across the country.
