Bill(s)

2015 Act 119 provides that the Board, in consultation with the Division of Personnel Management in the Department of Administration, notify the Joint Committee on Finance (JCF) through a 21-day passive review if it intends to execute a contract to provide self-insured group health plans on a regional or statewide basis.

If the co-chairpersons of the JCF do not notify the Board that the JCF has scheduled a meeting for the purpose of approving the execution of the contract within 21 working days after the date of the Board’s notification, the Board may execute the contract.
