The Department of Administration has announced that Montana's experiment with state employee health clinics has saved an estimated $6.8 million.

The experiment that the lawmakers set up, was to open health clinics for state employees in our state.

Since 2013 office visits and lab fees have been taking care of by the new state clinics. The Montana experiment has worked.  Wasteful trips to the doctor are very low and six million dollars has been saved.

Tuesday the state employee health clinic in Miles City was closed due to a lack of use.
