HEALTHCARE COST CONTAINMENT COMMITTEE MINUTES
APRIL 10th, 2017

Meeting Called to Order by Tom Woodruff

Financials and Dashboard - Fiscal Year 2017 Anticipated Healthcare Appropriation Budget review shows the active population general fund appropriation budget closing with a surplus, as well as the retiree health general fund appropriation balance.

Partnership - Staff reported as of April 1st, 2017; Partnership 1.0 has a total of 2,800 employees/4,700 members, and Partnership 2.0 has a total of 4,300 employees/11,400 members. To date there are currently 41 groups in 2.0 with two large groups as well as some smaller ones anticipated to join on July 1st, 2017.

Open Enrollment - Staff reported that Open Enrollment will run from May 8th - June 2nd. In light of the fact that staffing fairs depletes resources within the division and are not well attended when there are no changes, an agreement has been reached to not schedule Open Enrollment Fairs this year. Communications will be going out to agencies before May 8th indicating the availability of resources to them during the open enrollment period.

Care Management Solutions Inc. will be reaching out to agencies in an effort to set up information sessions around HEP and HEP Compliance.

No other Old Business was discussed.
