With minimal copays and no premiums, the health coverage offered to the board members overseeing the operations of Western Regional OTB stands out in comparison with what most people receive. According to Jim Heaney of Investigative Post, 13 of 17 active board members and three retired members utilize the coverage. Heaney's research also discovered an earlier ruling from the Attorney General which found such benefits to be improper. OTB officials say they will now seek an opinion from the Attorney General on the matter.
