Webinar: How Memphis Cut Retiree Health Costs with Marketplace Approach

Governing offers a free webinar to highlight a best practice in managing a growing fiscal issue for many county and municipal governments.

From Governing:

Join us to learn how the City of Memphis uses an innovative approach called a private individual marketplace to make retiree health care more sustainable and give retirees better health plan options. We’re presenting an interactive 60-minute webcast where Memphis city officials will explain how the city achieved greater control over its retiree health costs and liabilities, while cutting annual healthcare premiums by almost $3,000 for 99 percent of its Medicare-eligible retirees.

According to healthcare.gov, in some limited cases insurance companies sell private health plans outside Open Enrollment that count as qualifying health coverage.
