Rate Changes for 2015

What’s New for 2015
We are again faced with increases in medical plan costs as the result of the
number and dollar amount of claims filed by plan participants combined with the
escalating cost of medical services. As in the past, your employer will share the
cost increases with you.
To help us better control rising medical plan costs, we ask that you commit to a
healthy lifestyle and be fully involved in every decision about your health so that
when you do need care, you get it in the most appropriate place and the most cost-effective
