State Health Benefits Increase Remains Unresolved

Unfortunately, as we reported last week, the talks regarding relief for raising healthcare premium costs remain unresolved. This comes among news that Newark, Camden, and Trenton have all left the State Health Benefits system, or are in the process of doing so. Earlier this week the State Health Benefits Plan Design Committee met to appoint a Super Conciliator; listen to vendor presentations on assisting parents of Special needs and a bill system; and establishing dates to discuss prescription subgroups. There was no action or discussion on the increase to the State Health Benefits program.

The League, along with our partners with the Conference of Mayors and Associations of Counties, continues to remain actively engaged in seeking relief and encourage you to continue to your outreach to the Governor’s Office and your Legislators. It is important that your voices are heard in Trenton.
