Group Insurance/Health Board now has enough cronies to work Walker divide and conquer scheme on "workers" and "retirees".

Update 12/13 : They punted for a month ... keep the pressure on

Self-Insurance will hurt all Wisconsinites!

12/13/2016 Group Insurance Board goes on record -- will they be telling us "drop dead?"

Wisconsin could gain, lose by self-insuring state workers, report says

The new report, by staff at the state Department of Employee Trust Funds, will be presented Wednesday to the Group Insurance Board, which oversees the $1.4 billion health benefits program for 250,000 state and local government workers and their family members.
The board is expected to discuss bids from companies seeking to participate in a self-insurance program in closed session Wednesday and act on the matter publicly Dec. 13. A move to self-insurance would then go before the state Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee.

State seeks bids for self-insurance for state workers 
Wisconsin State Journal 7/23/2016

... But Phil Dougherty, senior executive officer of the Wisconsin Association of Health Plans, which represents 12 of the 17 HMOs involved in the current program, said the bid process won’t evaluate other important factors.
... “There are serious considerations outside the scope of the (request for proposal) process that must be explored — real consequences, ranging from elimination of choice for consumers and greater financial risk for taxpayers to market instability and higher costs for other health care purchasers and local communities,” Dougherty said in a statement.
If the Group Insurance Board adopts self-insurance, the state legislature’s Joint Finance Committee would have oversight of any contract.

This will at first opportunity be used to cut health benefits.  It will have the rollover effect of diminishing health benefits for everyone in the state.
