CalPERS Health Regions Under Review, Employer Feedback Requested
July 12, 2018
CalPERS needs some feedback from county stakeholders as the healthcare region map is being redrawn. These regional boundaries are critical because they dictate health insurance premiums from one contracting agency to the next.
Throughout the rest of this year, CalPERS will be exploring different options associated with the makeup of the regions and the calculation of regional factors, with final action scheduled to take place in December 2018. Their online feedback survey is open through July 20, 2018 and counties are encouraged to participate.
This feedback will be presented to the Board of Administration at their September meeting. It is intended to assist the Board in making the best decision for all parties involved. In addition to the survey, CalPERS issued a circular letter outlining an alternative feedback opportunity which counties are also encouraged to consider.
