2016 Health Plan Changes
Conference Board of Pension & Health Benefits - Freedom to Choose Initiative
The Freedom to Choose initiative is the board's proposal for transitioning the current clergy health insurance program from a Confeence-sponsored group plan to an approach where individuals can purchase coverage of their choice with financial support from the local church. Wendy McCoy will explain the proposal, answer questions and to hear feedback or concerns about the proposed change. The CBOPHB will be finalizing this proposal at their meeting in February 2016. Wendy would like to take feedback from the District clergy meetings to the Board to refine their proposal that will be presented for a vote during the 2016 Annual Conference.
Plan to join in this opportunity to educate members about this important issue.
