PEIA Announces Schedule for Expedited Public Hearings


The Governor has requested the Public Employees Insurance Agency (PEIA) Finance Board to consider a change to its FY19 financial plan to evaluate using the average salary income for two spouses who are both public employees covered by PEIA instead of total family income.
Under this proposal, if both spouses are public employees and, are covered by PEIA, with one spouse being covered as a dependent, the total of both salaries will be added together and divided by two to determine their salary index code.  This change will affect the premium structure of the plan. This is the only issue that will be discussed at the public hearings. 
The public hearings will be held as follows:
Monday, February 12, 2018 -- Charleston
University of Charleston,
Geary Student Union Ballroom,
2300 MacCorkle Ave., SE
Tuesday, February 13, 2018 -- Morgantown
West Virginia University
The Erickson Alumni Center
One Alumni Drive
Wednesday, February 14, 2018 -- Beckley
Tamarack Conference Center,

Hearings will be conducted from 6 – 8 p.m. at each location.  Registration will begin at 5:30.   Those requesting to speak at the hearing must indicate that at registration.  Speakers will be limited to five minutes each, and comments will be limited to the one topic noted above.
