Presentation on Health Insurance Cost Projections

	Cochran presented proposed health insurance plan changes for FY 
2006, including:

-- improved co-insurance for out-of-network service for the Panther 
Premiere plan;
-- improved in-network and out-of-network out-of-pocket maximums for 
the Panther Plus plan;
-- the removal of deductibles and co-insurance for preventive 
services for all PPO plans;
-- the removal of co-payments for preventive services for the Panther 
Gold HMO plan;
-- no change in co-payments for pharmaceuticals and coverage for 
prescriptions related to smoking cessation; and
-- efforts to promote health risk assessment, preventive services, 
and smoking cessation.

Participation in a baseline basic metabolic blood panel and lipid profile 
would result in no net increase for the year in the cost to the employee 
for health insurance.  Cochran moved that the Committee approve the 
changes as part of the overall planning and budgeting parameters for FY 
2006.  Larsen seconded.  The Committee approved the motion unanimously.

Update on FY 2006 Planning and Budgeting Parameters

	Larsen summarized discussions of the Parameters Subcommittee, with 
the understanding that enrollment projections are not final and other 
budget components are still in flux. 

	The meeting adjourned at 11:33 a.m.
