WA Retirees protest when PEBB tried to take away health benefits.

We highly recommend this article summarizing the Public Employees Benefits Board meeting and their decision not to terminate Uniform Medical Retiree plan, (which is currently administered by Regence BlueShield). 

It's an excellent illustration and inspiration of how collaboration and forging alliances between advocacy groups, patients, providers and other stakeholders can work. 

Stay tuned as CPP plans to consult with Laurie Weidner, executive director for the Retired Public Employees Council (RPEC) on strategies to forge such alliances.

Weidner explained that the process required a lot of public engagement with the issue before the board committed to the resolution last week to postpone a decision on UMP until Jan. 1, 2024.
