Aug. 1 update: A Wisconsin State Journal story over the weekend indicated employees would see a pay reduction in January 2012 because of higher health insurance contributions for those on state health plans. Campus benefits experts say there is no pay reduction scheduled. Instead, the story refers to an upcoming change to the state group health insurance uniform benefits. Starting in plan year 2012, subscribers and their dependents will be required to pay co-insurance for non-preventive services. More details are available on the campus Payroll & Benefits Services website in the News section link “Changes Coming to State Group Health Insurance.”
