Louisiana Office of Group Benefits to hold meetings on health plan offerings

Louisiana's Office of Group Benefits is preparing for the 2015 plan year by holding statewide enrollment meetings to provide more information about OGB's 2015 health plan offerings for retirees and active employees.

A recent analysis of health plans in the region showed that OGB offers the highest value plan among its peer group. In 2015, OGB will continue to offer affordable, quality coverage to its members through a new set of plan options that offer a variety of coverage choices.

Beginning in January, OGB will offer active employees and retirees who are not enrolled in Medicare a choice between three HMO plans, one PPO plan and two consumer-driven health plans that offer employer contributions to help offset out-of-pocket costs.

Retirees with Medicare as primary insurance will be able to choose from three HMO plans, one PPO plan and one consumer-driven plan as secondary plans. They will also have the option to select from a variety of Medicare Advantage plans.

Members will have the option to choose from plans that offer significantly lower premiums than those currently available, a national provider network, and plan structures that include traditional co-pay options as well as co-insurance and deductible options.

Annual enrollment begins October 1 and ends October 31. In addition to the meetings listed below, OGB will host live webcasts as enrollment nears.
