PEBB Approves Rates for 2015 -- Holding Inflation to 0.7 Percent

The Lund Report
June 18th, 2014

   The Public Employees Benefit Board on Tuesday inked the set of health options for public employees and approved premium rates that will rise only 0.7 percent above 2014 premiums -- a second year in a row that premiums have risen less than 1 percent.
   The minuscule rate increase and wide menu of options -- which include two coordinated care organizations, Moda Health and Kaiser Permanente, in addition to two options from Providence -- come as a feather in the hat of Gov. John Kitzhaber as he seeks to transform the way healthcare is delivered in Oregon.
  "Our coordinated care organizations are delivering promising results to Oregon Health Plan members,” the Governor crowed in a statement. “We want to see the same kinds of health improvements in our state’s workforce and their families."
