III-A History

In 2011, Idaho cities formed the III-A Trust to combat the excessive annual rate increases delivered by the insurance industry. We have a proven reputation for providing enhanced, progressive benefits for Idaho public employees.  Our staff is committed to our members and are accessible 24/7 to address any circumstance that may arise. The partnership among our Idaho Public Agencies ensures reliable and stable funding rates.

 

The Trust was built and organized by Charlynn Harless, CEO/President of Legacy Consulting, after the manner of other self-funded local government health benefits pools she had created over several decades. Ketchum City Administrator Gary Marks had worked with Charlynn in the State of Montana and contacted her to facilitate the organization of a public pool in Idaho.

 

The founding agencies are Aberdeen, American Falls, Arco, Blackfoot, Cascade, Council, Donnelly, Downey, Dubois, Fruitland, Grangeville, Homedale, Ketchum, Kooskia, Lava Hot Springs, Menan, Minidoka Irrigation, New Meadows, New Plymouth, Nezperce, Oakley, Paul, Potlatch, St. Anthony, Victor, Wilder, Chubbuck, Montpelier, Ammon, Burley, Hailey, and Soda Springs.

 

The Trust began offering benefits in February 2012.

 

On February 9, 2011, the III-A Board of Trustees was selected to govern the Trust.  There were 11 Trustees appointed … today there are 13.
