HEALTHCARE COST CONTAINMENT COMMITTEE MINUTES
JUNE 3, 2013

Meeting Called to Order by Thomas Woodruff

New Business:

Bill Thompson presented the monthly dashboard report on financials. The financials indicated that paid claims and fees were continuing to run better than originally budgeted for the fiscal year and that at the end of the year the accounts should have a surplus. Medical trends are below what was originally forecast and pharmacy costs have also remained under control. Cost savings were realized through increase in the 90 day fill and utilization of mail order and the maintenance drug network. Committee requested a deeper look at cost difference of specialty drugs paid under medical versus pharmacy. Staff reported that open enrollment was underway and all fairs would be completed by June 7th. A status report on partnership was provided with two groups joining for 7/1/13. Tom provided an update on the work being done on the SIM project.
