Membership Minute

In this edition of the Membership Minute we provide information about our 2015 fees, a report on our updated membership numbers and welcome new employer groups who joined us in August and September.

Fees for BHCG employers set for 2015

You should have received an email earlier this month concerning BHCG membership fees for 2015. The BHCG Executive Steering Committee has set the membership fee for 2015. It will be $15.00 per eligible participant, which represents no increase over the 2014 membership fee.

An eligible participant is an active employee that is eligible to take your company sponsored health plan offering even if they choose not to enroll. The employee needs to reside or work within the 11 eligible counties of Dodge, Jefferson, Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Rock, Sheboygan, Walworth, Washington and Waukesha. A retiree is considered an eligible participant if they are enrolled in your company sponsored health plan offering (this does not have to be the BHCG-sponsored Humana network). The retiree needs to reside within the 11 eligible counties noted above. If a retiree waives coverage, a participation fee does not need to be paid. A “company sponsored plan” is defined as a plan that requires the employer to file a 5500.

We firmly believe the BHCG has delivered significant value for our members and the community at large and we look forward to continuing to do so in 2015. Invoices will be mailed in November and payment is due by January 9. If you have any questions or concerns about your membership fees, please feel free to contact Joleen Hohl at 414-858-2311 or
