2021 BCNA Retiree Health Care Plan Renewal
Kim Archambault, HR Director, Human Resources
Be it Resolved, the Calhoun County Board of Commissioners does hereby approve the 2021 Group Benefit and Rate Agreement for the Blue Care Network Advantage plan as presented, and authorizes the HR Director to sign the Agreement.
It is recommended that the Calhoun County Board of Commissioners approve the 2021 Group Benefit and Rate Agreement for the Blue Care Network Advantage plan as presented.
The Blue Care Network Advantage plan (BCNA) is a fully-insured health care plan currently being offered to Calhoun County retirees that are post-65 and eligible for Medicare. This plan requires an early renewal due to CMS (Center for Medicare Services) requirements for reporting and enrollee notification. The rates are effective for the 2021 calendar year and reflect a 18.37% decrease from the 2020 rates, with no plan design changes recommended.
The Board could choose not to renew this health care plan option, however, this plan is the least costly option for the Post-65 retiree group.
The monthly plan cost for 2021 is $239.58 and is a 18.37% decrease from the 2020 rates. This equates to a $53.90 monthly decrease for a retiree member currently enrolled in this plan. There will be no budgetary impact to the County general fund because County retirees pay the cost of the premium, less any fixed discount they already receive per policy 361-2 (retirement) based on years of service. Road Department retirees are budgeted outside of the general fund and there will be a small savings depending on the cost-sharing level of the retiree that varies upon retirement date.
