Notice to Bargaining Unit 07 Members

A notice to all BU07 Members were mailed to individual addresses with the following information from the EUTF office:

The UHPA initiated communication with the State regarding implementation of Article XXII, Hawaii Employer-Union Health Benefits Trust Fund Employer Contribution amounts, of the UHPA collective bargaining agreement. The EUTF has been notified by the Office of Collective Bargaining that the State agrees to pay for members of bargaining unit 7 the highest dollar amount contribution per month that is being paid for any other bargaining unit for the comparable health insurance plan coverage. There are two plans where the HSTA employer contribution is higher than the EUTF employer contribution: the Kaiser comprehensive plan and the EUTF (HMSA) supplemental plan (for self and family, not two-party). The result is that the EUTF has adjusted employer and employee contributions for BU 07 members enrolled in those two plans as shown on the next page.

The EUTF Board of Trustees has authorized a special open enrollment to permit changes due to the revised information regarding employer contributions. Members of BU 07 who wish to change their open enrollment selection (effective 7/1/07) to enroll in either the Kaiser comprehensive plan or the EUTF (HMSA) supplemental plan should follow the procedure below. The deadline for submitting the enrollment change (EC 1) form is July 25, 2007. For questions or assistance, contact the EUTF office at 586-7390 or toll free 1-800-295-0089.

Procedure for changing plan enrollment:

1) Print and complete the EC-1 form.

2) Take the completed form and this letter to your personnel office.

3) Request your personnel office to sign the form and fax the signed form to the EUTF at 586-2320 by deadline noted above.

4) Your enrollment deductions will be adjusted retroactively to July 1, 2007.
