[ARCHIVED] State Health Benefits Commission Meets – No New Action on SHBP 2023 Increase

Earlier this week, the State Health Benefits Commission (SHBC) met to consider regular business and appeal requests. During the meeting, SHBC Committee member Dudley Burge asked for an update on and solutions to the 22% cost increase in local government health benefits and the failure of the Third-Party Administrator to meet financial benchmarks. The Chair stated that these matters would be discussed in closed session.
 The dramatic State Health Benefits Plan increases will be in effect in under two months with no relief in sight. Please continue to reach out to the Administration and your legislative representatives for support of such relief.
