Retiree Health Plans: A National Assessment

Issued by: Center for State and Local Government Excellence

Date: Sept. 23, 2008

WASHINGTON, Sept. 23 -- The Center for State and Local Government Excellence and researchers from North Carolina State University's School of Public and International Affairs and College of Management have established a partnership to focus on state and local government retiree health care issues. This report shines a light on differences and similarities in state health plans in a quick reference format. It includes such details as eligibility requirements for coverage and the cost to employees and to state governments for the benefit.

Future Center publications will examine the myths and realities of the state and local government retiree health care crisis, what states and localities are doing to finance retiree health care, policy alternatives, intergenerational issues, and benchmarking.

The Center for State and Local Government Excellence was founded to explore issues that are important to attract and retain the talent needed for public service. Offering high quality benefits will remain as important in the future as it has been in the past.

With heightened emphasis on the economic security of future retirees and increasing fiscal pressures, government leaders will need authoritative data to understand the issues. They also will want to identify and adopt promising practices as quickly as practical.
