GIB Approves Vendor Contract Extensions
The Group Insurance Board approved contract extensions for third party administrators at its meeting yesterday. The following contract extensions were approved:
- Navitus Health Solutions, pharmacy benefit manager – one-year extension (January 1-December 31, 2019)
- StayWell, wellness and disease management – one-year extension (January 1-December 31, 2019)
- Truven Health Analytics, LLC, data warehouse and business intelligence solution – two-year extension (January 1, 2019-December 31, 2020)
The Board also approved a plan to align optional, supplemental benefits – dental, vision, and accidental death and dismemberment coverage – to offer better value for members. The decision was based on feedback from members that current benefit options are complex and confusing.
The alignment of benefit options for state employees and retirees should make it easier for them to compare benefits, make informed decisions and coordinate with their group health insurance coverage.
