LCCEF leadership has been evaluating options to help alleviate the renewal increase for our current insurance plan. For 2018-19, the current plan renewal came in at 9%. This 9% includes the rate stabilization amount of $175,000 that had been provided by PacificSource during our renewal last year. There is no longer a discussion about moving to Oregon Educators Benefits Board (OEBB) this year.
Next week we will be conducting a survey to find out our member’s preferred options. Everyone is welcome to take the survey but we will only tabulate the results of full members as full members will be the ones to make the decision to ratify the contract. If you would like to become a full member in time to have your survey count and then be able to vote on the contract ratification please deliver a completed member form to any of your Union Officers before the end of the day Wednesday, May 23.
It’s important for you to review the insurance plans. Be prepared to bring questions to one of the insurance information sessions:
