Interim Report: Joint Committee on Insurance and PEIA

The Joint Committee on Insurance and PEIA met this afternoon.

The Committee heard a presentation on The Health Plan as a PEIA coverage option. It is a nonprofit option located in Wheeling. Currently, the Health Plan is one of three managed care partners for Medicaid. The Health Plan has been a partner with the state for over 30 years and provides insurance for 14,300 PEIA members. It has members in the Northern Panhandle, Kanawha County, and Eastern Ohio. The Health Plan is open to all 55 counties, but is most recognized in the Northern Panhandle area. If all PEIA members were on the Health Plan, it would save the state $122 million, but the expense could fall to the employees as coinsurance. The Health Plan works with the community to give back.
