Membership Minute

In this edition of the Membership Minute we provide a reminder about our 2014 fees, announce an upcoming membership event, report on our updated membership numbers and welcome new employer groups who joined us in December and January.

Fees for BHCG employers were due January 31

Just a reminder that your membership fees for 2014 were due January 31, 2014. We are aware there may be confusion about how to compute the BHCG membership fees. As a reminder, you are required to base your membership fee payment on all individuals who are eligible to enroll in any one of your plan offerings – regardless of whether they choose to enroll in one of your plan offerings – if they reside in one of the 11 covered counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Washington, Ozaukee, Racine, Kenosha, Walworth, Rock, Jefferson, Dodge and Sheboygan. This applies to both active employees and all retirees (pre and post 65).

If you have any questions, please contact Joleen Hohl at 414-433-4719 X2 or at Your dollars allow us to continually work on your behalf to improve the value of the health care services your employees and retirees receive. We thank you for your support!  

March 26 membership event  

It’s not too late to register for the next BHCG membership event. The event, to be held at Briggs & Stratton from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM, is entitled, “Benefit Design in the Post ACA Environment.”  Bruce Sherman, MD, medical director of the Employers Health Coalition in Ohio, will:
