If we decide to move over to SISC, will we get to choose from several providers like our current contract offers? I heard Zak Gallegos mention we would have to choose between Anthem and Blue Shield. Our current contract with CalPERS offers Anthem Select, Anthem Traditional, Blue Shield Access+, Health Net Salud y Mas, Health Net SmartCare, Kaiser Permanente, Sharp, and United Healthcare. Are you saying we have to choose either Kaiser or only one other plan?
SISC offers the following Providers; Kaiser, Anthem and Blue Shield which makes up 69% of the current membership Provider selections. 22% of the membership opt out leaving 9% of the membership in a Provider other than Kaiser, Anthem or Blue Shield. CSEA 262 will need to vote on a Provider combination of either Kaiser/Anthem or Kaiser/Blue Shield. Once a Provider combination is selected there will be over 100 plan options that can be customized to meet CSEA 262's needs.
