June 28, 2011 Hinton News - 3 U PDATE Bg Delegate V00rgima Mahan State employees and others covered by the Public Employees Insurance Agency could face benefit cuts, with the health insurance plan looking at a funding deficit next year. Early estimates are that, in order to keep up with the costs of health care and prescription drugs, PEIA would need to increase employer premiums by 9.5 percent and employee premiums by 12.5 percent in the coming plan year. However, PEIA Executive Director Ted Cheatham said this week that acting Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin's office has advised that it plans to recommend an employer premium increase of no more than 4 percent in the 2012-13 budget bill. That would amount to about a $16.6 million increase in employer contri.butions -- not the $43.7 million PEIA projects it will need to maintain current benefits. "Four percent from the state is a significant shortfall for both active and retiree plans," Cheatham told the PEIA Finance Board Wednesday. Under PEIA's funding formula, a 4 percent cap on the employer premium increase would mean that employee premiums could go up no more than 7.5 percent next year, further worsening the deficit. For the current plan year, active employee medical claims are at $289.8 million, up 8 percent from 2009-10, and prescription drug costs Notice VETERAN'S MUSEUM SCHEDULE The Veteran's Museum at 419 Ballengee Street will be open each Friday and Saturday from noon to 4:00 p.m. beginning June 3 through Veteran's Day, November 11. Volunteers will be available to assist visitors. Admission is free. Now Ce#ified are at $96.6 million, up 13 percent over the previous year. At Cheatham's request, the Finance Board scheduled an unofficial retreat for Aug. 17 at the Stonewall Resort to informally discuss possible benefit changes. Cheatham also said PEIA did everything possible in 2008 to notify cities and counties that their employees would no longer be able to opt-in to PEIA coverage when they retire. In 2008, the Legislature changed the law that allowed retired city and county employees to obtain PEIA benefits, regardless of whether the local government had PEIA coverage for its active employees. At the time, PEIA decided to extend retiree coverage to city and county employees with at least 10 years' service at the time the law went into effect, providing the benefit to all employees who worked for their city or county government since July 1, 1998. Cheatham said all city and county benefits coordinators statewide received notification of the change in the law in an e-mail sent on July 3, 2OO8. That e-mail included an attachment from PEIA outlining all possible benefits scenarios for non- state employees, he said. "I don't know what we could have done differently," Cheatham said. "I don't think PEIA could have done anything differently or better." Josh Sword, who represents teachers on the PEIA board, said recent news accounts citing officials in various counties who were unaware of the change gave the impression there was no notification from PEIA.
