SB 73 Public Employees’ Benefit and Insurance Program Amendments

Senate Bill 73, Public Employees’ Benefit and Insurance Program Amendments, sponsored by Sen. Hemmert (R), will change the parity between the PEHP Traditional plan the STAR plan.

As currently drafted, SB73 will lead to dramatic premium increases for employees who are enrolled in the Traditional plan.  A legislative committee hearing has not been scheduled because the sponsor is considering changes to the bill.

UPEA staff is meeting with the sponsor, PEHP, and other stakeholders regarding this issue.  UPEA will provide updates as they become available.  Please be prepared to contact your legislator about this bill. Click here to read the bill.
