The minutes from the April 13 meeting were read and approved by the committee.
Howard Berriman gave a report about the meeting with the Summet Corporation. A discussion was held about the results of those meetings. The focus of the meeting seemed to be more on wellness than other issues regarding our Health Plan. The final report from Larry Chapman, the chairman of the company, will be out soon and the committee will be able to see a copy of his report.
The committee also held a discussion regarding the April 27 meeting with St. John's billing representatives. After meeting with them, they seemed to want us to send them specific cases of billing problems so they could take them and find out what happened with their billing. They indicated that they were always working to improve service.
The committee nominated Neosha Mackey for chair of the committee for the next two years. After a vote, Neosha was elected the chair by all members present.
As a member of the Human Resources Planning Task Force, John Satzinger gave the committee some insight into what their group would be doing in the near future. He asked for input from committee members. A number of members were willing to give him immediate input. John also encouraged members to get with him if any other issues come to light.
The committee also discussed issues regarding the long-range plan and how the Fringe Benefits Committee and Health Care Plans Review Committee would work together in light of the new organizational structure.
The meeting ended as members drifted off to other meetings and classes.
