The Health Benefits Committee consists of Director of Health Benefits and from two to six members. The committee follows discussions, decisions, and actions of the California Public Employees' Retirement System Board of Administration, the California Legislature, California executive agencies, Congress, and federal government agencies that relate to health benefits, especially those affecting retirees. The committee makes recommendations to the Executive Committee and the State Council. The Chair of the Health Benefits Committee serves on the State Council.
[N.B. Members are reminded that if they call on the services of the Health Benefits Committee or its chair to represent them to another agency, e.g. CalPERS , they must EXPLICITLY give the Committee in writing or by email permission to use their data and name. Otherwise their case can only be presented as a general, not a specific, inquiry.]
