TO: DFA Members
FROM: Ian Kennedy, Chair
The Labor Relations office at UCOP has responded to my letter that set out the concerns of our members in regard to changes to providers in our medical plans. Howard Pripas has offered the following response:
Dear Professor Kennedy
Your letter of August 10 , 2007 to Executive Director Randolph Scott has been forwarded to me for response.
Minimizing provider disruption for our current enrollees was a key goal during the University’s medical bid process and the vast majority of employees will not be required to change providers. At the same time, a very small percentage of faculty and staff may experience provider changes due to the network HMO consolidation. In the next several weeks we will continue our work with the providers in an attempt to further reduce disruptions.
