Joint Health Care Committee to host forums

The University of Alaska Joint Health Care Committee recently made nine motions to change the UA Choice health care plan. These motions have been endorsed by the chief human resources officer and are now being reviewed by President Gamble to determine whether or not they will be included in the UA Choice Plan for FY14 or later years. Prior to making any final decisions, the president has asked for a further comment period to hear from the university community on these motions.

As a result, the JHCC is holding a series of Health Care Forums at each main campus to provide employees information about the motions, an opportunity to ask any questions they may have, a opportunity to give feeback to the JHCC. The forum dates, locations and audio information follow below. Human Resources is still determining video locations and will post the information on the Statewide Human Resource website once it is available.
