Board of Trustees
An eleven-member Board governs the Health Trust, and oversees its health, dental, short and long-term disability, vision and life insurance plans.
The Health Trust Board governs a complex array of employee benefit programs for local government, county and special district employees in an ever-changing insurance market environment. The Health Trust provides employee benefit programs to over 450 public sector employers around the state, with approximately 20,000 employees, dependents and retirees participating in the Trust’s health plans.
The Trust is regulated as a Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangement by the state Bureau of Insurance and is one of the largest self-insured plans in the state. The Board works with a number of professional advisors, including its Plan Administrator (MMA), benefit advisor, actuary, and legal counsel, all of whom assist the Board in governing the Trust. Health Trustees serve as plan fiduciaries and, as such, must administer the Trust’s programs in the interest of Trust participants. The Board is involved in many different functions, including setting annual rates, developing new plan offerings, reviewing third party administrative services, hearing benefit appeals, and analyzing claims trends.
