Bill Thompson presented the monthly dashboard report on financials. The financials indicated that paid claims and fees were running better than originally budgeted for the fiscal year and that at the end of the year the accounts may have a surplus. Medical trends are below what was originally forecast and pharmacy costs have also remained stable. Dave Williams took a deeper look at the utilization of specialists providing routine physicals. Tom translated the overall spending numbers to the State budget appropriations. Bob Dakers requested additional information on the Medicare B Real Time COB process through Silverscript as a possible cost saving measure.
