League of California Cities® Health Benefits Marketplace Webinar: Cities offering CalPERS Medical Insurance Coverage

October 21, 2016
Please join the League of California Cities® for a one-hour Health Benefits Marketplace (HBM) webinar on Nov. 9.
 
This webinar is tailored specifically for cities providing employees and retirees with medical insurance coverage through the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS). 
 
The HBM offers an important and flexible solution for cities unable to reduce their OPEB exposure and manage employee health care costs under their current plan design. Cities offering medical insurance coverage through a contract with CalPERS face a range of challenges, particularly when considering alternative medical insurance coverage options. During this valuable webinar, participants will learn about:
  • Unique challenges when exploring medical insurance coverage outside the CalPERS system;
  • Planning ahead — transition timelines;
  • Obtaining comparative quotes to evaluate options;
  • How geography and carrier networks affect options; and
  • Positioning your city for a successful transition. 
Register online.
