SEANC members earn DPS Badge of Excellence Awards

Time and time again we hear of state employees and SEANC members who go above and beyond the call of duty and each time we are proud to thank them and help share their stories.

This time we are recognizing six SEANC members whose actions and achievements were honored by the state Department of Public Safety at the first annual Badge of Excellence Awards ceremony in January.

Changes made to State Health Plan mean higher premiums for employees, retirees

Members of the State Health Plan will see higher premiums and new wellness surcharges in 2016-17 after the Board of Trustees’ unanimous vote Wednesday, unless the General Assembly can be persuaded to make changes.

The biggest change announced Wednesday from the original proposal presented in January was to the Traditional 70/30 PPO, which had been the premium-free option.

The original proposal for the PPO 70/30 was to establish a $60 premium for active employees and allow them to reduce that to $20 with completion of a wellness surcharge activity.
