The Group Insurance Commission has announced several Listening Sessions coming up in the next few weeks.  The goal of these sessions is for the GIC to present the FY20 benefit design changes to the health insurance plans.  We believe that the GIC will be proposing increases to health plans, and NAGE will be standing strong against any increases.  Although these are just listening sessions, we will be calling on NAGE members to stand in opposition if any increases are proposed.  All sessions are open to the public, and the GIC will not be scheduling additional sessions.  

The GIC will be permitting public comments during the sessions, and will also be accepting written comments.
