PCBC Association Health Plan-Informational Meeting
Coverage will be available to Council members, including non-profit members, with one to ninety-nine eligible employees. There will be informational sessions for employers and employees along the way. The effective date for the plan will be January 1, 2019, so employers will be able to compare this plan with their current plan, if they have one for employees. For those businesses who are not members, they will need to join PCBC to be able to take advantage of the opportunity, but non-members are invited to the informational meetings.
“It is widely known that healthcare costs are a challenge for businesses and employees. We hope by offering this, PCBC will be able to positively impact healthcare costs for our members”, said Todd Kuckkahn, Executive Director, PCBC.
Council members will have the opportunity to offer one traditional plan option and two high deductible HSA qualified plan options through two networks (the Aspirus Network and the WPS Statewide Network). The PCBC Association Health Plan will be underwritten as one large group and the underwriting process will be discussed during the information sessions listed below. Businesses will be able to opt-in or opt-out after rates are determined.
