PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO ARTICLE III OF THE TRUST AGREEMENT RESULT ANNOUNCED
Recently, other public sector unions have requested to bargain into our health plan; they see how our Trust has been able to control costs, while offering a high level of benefits and reasonable employee contribution rates. In order to expand the Trust and allow other public sector union plans into our Trust, a modification to Article III of the Trust Agreement was necessary which required the vote of our membership.
The proposed modification was overwhelmingly approved.
The Board of Trustees thanks all of the members who considered this proposal and voted. Watch for future updates regarding other public sector union plans that may be joining our Trust.

THE PACIFIC HEALTH COALITION—A TRUSTED PARTNER
Health Care Cost Management Corporation of Alaska (HCCMCA) is now doing business as the Pacific Health Coalition. It’s a new name, but it’s mission remains the same: ensuring access to valued, quality health care services for employees and their families.
The Trust, along with approximately 45 other health plans in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, is a member of the Pacific Health Coalition. The Coalition helps member plans like ours control health care costs by negotiating better pricing on health benefits and services than we could achieve on our own. This allows us to offer you high-quality health benefits and services – at lower costs.
