2014 Medical RFP (info/action: Bdatt.1)
Administrator Kapowich read staff’s recommendation on its 2014 medical RFP for the Board’s discussion and action.
ACTION: Peter Callero moved staff’s recommendation for the Board to delay release of an RFP in 2013 for 2014’s plan year, taking the opportunity to improve its fall 2013 position for an RFP release in 2014 for the 2015 plan year. This will allow PEBB to continue refining health engagement metrics and to further align its purchasing strategies. The motion, seconded by Tom Jovick, was unanimously approved in a roll-called vote by the Board.
