Healthcare costs continue to rise greater than inflation driving up medical plan costs each year. Human Resources partnered with the University Benefits Committee to host a series of campus forums on how to manage medical plan costs. The purpose of these forums was to discuss projected healthcare costs and trends in the healthcare system, explore future medical plan options and collect employee feedback.

The forums are part of the Re-Envision Colorado State Initiative. In the year since Colorado State President Tony Frank challenged the campus community to “Re-Envision CSU,” hundreds of faculty, students and staff have shared their ideas for the future of the University.

If you were unable to attend and want to learn more about the evolution of our employer sponsored medical plans, please watch the recording of one of the campus forums.

Healthcare Survey Highlights

Human Resources recently conducted a series of on-campus forums to gauge employee preferences for managing healthcare plan costs (see below). As a result of these conversations, a survey was published inviting employees to provide feedback on what might be the best medical plan opportunities.

Over 1,800 employees participated, representing roughly 35% of benefits-eligible, non-classified staff. The feedback was analyzed and discussed with the University Benefits Committee and Cabinet to help create a medical plan roadmap for 2018 and 2019.

The opportunities that employees were most interested in implementing are outlined in the video below. This recording will help you to understand upcoming changes for the University's self-funded medical plans.
