Change to Long Term Care Insurance Program
The state recently hired CHCS Services to manage the retiree Long Term Care (LTC) Insurance Program. CHCS is sending out letters of introduction to those who purchase LTC insurance, and evidently the letters indicate they "will be administering the health plan on behalf of the State of Alaska...", which implies they are also going to be replacing Aetna.
CHCS will only manage the Long Term Care insurance program, and they are not replacing Aetna. Aetna will continue to be the Third Party Administrator for the retiree medical, vision and audio insurance--at least through the end of 2016.
