At yesterday’s State Health Benefits Commission Rate Renewal meeting AON, the Commission’s consultant, recommended premium rates for plan year 2020. The recommendations include a 4.3% decrease for Active Employees, no increase or decrease for Early Retirees or Medicare Retirees. In the aggregate, the recommended rate represents an overall rate decrease of 3.8% for the Local Government Group State Health Benefits program. If you participate in the State Health Benefits Program, we suggest you review the Plan Year 2020 Rate Setting Recommendation Report – Local Government Employer Group. We are currently reviewing the report and will be providing additional updates.
