Options to Re-Design State Employee Health Insurance Benefits Presented, Report No. 01-21, March 2001
Full report in PDF format

The State Employees’ Group Health Insurance Program has experienced growth in health care costs resulting in projected program deficits beginning in Fiscal Year 2001-02. Expenses are projected to exceed revenues by $28.8 million in Fiscal Year 2000-01 and are projected to exceed revenues by $121.3 million in 2001-02 and $225.1 million in 2002-03. The Legislature should consider options in four areas to better control costs, provide enrollees more choices for their health insurance benefits, and address contribution rate inequities:
  • modifying the health insurance plan design;
  • modifying the contribution rate design;
  • increasing medical claims cost controls; and
  • increasing prescription drug cost controls.
