An investigation by the Greater Cleveland RTA board has found former board president George Dixon was not entitled to almost a million dollars in health benefits he never paid for.

Dixon first enrolled in RTA’s insurance policy when he became board president in 1994. During the next 24 years, Dixon racked up $130,000 in unpaid premiums. From 2003 to 2018, his policy additionally paid out more than $900,000 in medical claims.
