Health Care Authority’s (HCA) Virtual and In-person Listening Sessions and virtual public forums wrap up this month

All RPEC leaders and members who receive their healthcare benefits from the Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) are asked to register to take part in virtual and in-person listening sessions hosted by HCA. All stakeholder engagements will conclude this month. There is still space available in all sessions. Register here.

Retirees and their spouses or partners who are covered under UMP Classic, Kaiser Permanente NW Senior Advantage, Kaiser Permanente WA Medicare plans, Premera Blue Cross Medicare Supplement Plan G, UnitedHealthcare PEBB Balance, or United Healthcare PEBB Complete are eligible to participate. The listening sessions and public forums are your opportunities to share insights with HCA staff about your healthcare plan and the quality of services you receive from HCA. All virtual and in-person listening sessions will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. HCA will follow up with registrants via email and provide the questions, background information, and Zoom login information (for the virtual sessions) and/or the location/directions (for in-person sessions).

An in-person listening session will be held in Bothell on May 16th from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The location will be posted soon on the HCA website. HCA staff will follow up with directions and details. Space is still available. Register here.

Two more virtual public forums are also available on May 17th and 24th from 10-11:30 a.m. The public forums function like a public hearing. Registrants will have 3 minutes to speak about whatever issue, challenge, or suggestion they want to convey to HCA staff. Space is still available. Register here.

If you cannot attend a virtual or the last in-person listening session, the virtual public forum is another opportunity to share insights about your healthcare plan and the quality of service you receive from HCA. The virtual public forums are also open to those who have already participated in a listening session but have more to share or say. You can also use your 3 minutes to offer suggestions to HCA regarding how they can improve communications and service to retirees.
