AN ACT TO ALLOW RETIREES WHO RETURN TO WORK FOR THE STATE IN NONPERMANENT POSITIONS TO RETAIN THEIR COVERAGE OPTIONS UNDER THE STATE HEALTH PLAN FOR TEACHERS AND STATE EMPLOYEES RATHER THAN LIMITING SUCH RETIREES' COVERAGE OPTIONS TO THE "BRONZE LEVEL" HIGH-DEDUCTIBLE HEALTH PLAN NECESSITATED BY THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT, AS RECOMMENDED BY THE JOINT LEGISLATIVE EDUCATION OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE.
Senate committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.
Amends GS 135-48.40, deleting proposed language which directed the Department of State Treasurer, using a process developed by that Department, to reimburse an employing unit with the cost of providing coverage to an eligible retiree enrolled in the State Health Plan. Adds language which provides that the employing unit must pay the employer premiums for retirees who enroll pursuant to GS 135-48.40(b)(1a).
