10:45 pm
permanente decreased if 2017 and held them flat the katrero park increases 4.7 increase and added a cop structure to match blue shield neither of the plans changes the premium costs it is important to note it hiv drugs are excluded in the drug charge adding best doctors for the fund and the kaiser permanente increases for the actives amount to 5 percentage the kaiser permanente medicaid advantage increases 8 percent for the sustainability fund with the premium increase for medicare is 8.76 percent the blue shield for active uses and others retirees are 3.79 percent we've funded
10:46 pm
blue shield the employer takes the risk up to a certain dollar amount we pay the pharmacy and the other costs we continue to work with blue shield with significant success to keep the costs down adding the best doctors and sustainability fee bring the blue shield to 4.682 percentage with the retiree there over 16 percent working with blue shield and the proposed lowered to 10.2 the actuary recommended to accept the proposal and expand the ppo that was offered the first time and the medicare decreasing the rate increase by 11 percent our self-funded ppo
10:47 pm
administrative code by the a.k.a. would have increased by 48 plus percentage for actives and early retirees and the health service board used the rate stabilization to reduce those from 12 mrs. percentage the ppo ac was calculated at the 29 percentage with the actuary voted to - the new city plan ppo rather than continuing the self-funding this as fundamental change not a benefit change the reduction this reduces the ppo increased to 14 percent the overall increase for 2017 would have cost 14 plus $9 million by adapting the ppo
10:48 pm
instructions only to 2 want 5 percent at the 5.3 those amount to a million dollars our active self-delta ppo increased by .8 were reduced by 6 percent for 2016 over 2017 and are the same for 2017 the pacific delta plan for the retirees that adam an additional service lifelong disability andtions for the actives is florida inchanged in 2019 beginning in - smoking on the status of insured and this again decrease the premium by an average of 7.1 percent
10:49 pm
overall a total increase for the benefits is overall the total average compares favorably with the 9 percent i realize i may have received concerns from the medical retirees i want to assure you the plan will payal plans through by physician that accepts medicare and we believe the concerns are unwaeshtd the new ppo has a broader plan than the old city plan it has additional benefits and the lower premiums through kaiser permanente and low co-pay we hope to dispel the confusion what is covered along with our kaiser permanente there will be 20 members of the committee to help to educate and 5 town hall
10:50 pm
members that can't attend because of timing or that distance during and before enrollment- i also know that representatives from kaiser permanente and blue shield and united health care are here i urge your approval thank you director dodd's. >> supervisor yee. >> good morning, ms. dodd i have a related question i noticed that your reserves for the trust fund has been dwindled quite a bit from 11 millions to 3 million or so i'm wondering are there any plans to replenish to grow that back up are we in any danger you know of a
10:51 pm
shortage. >> we've spent the reserve amount over the last two years to buy down the early retiree active and rates to make them comprehensive with blue shield and capillary this year the board went through two rate deliberations what to buy down our policy is to set aside 1/3rd of any excess not excel by premiums over expenditures and to amortize any decreases over 3 years that amount would so been 3.679 millions the rate increased 48 percent plus to further decrease those costs and i don't believe that we are in -
10:52 pm
we still have what's the balances pamela? whatever 11 millions plus 3.79 is. >> so there's 3.79 that should be adequate nonetheless we have a tremendous number of sick people and if it isn't we will amortize any loss over 3 years but increase the premiums obviously. >> i'm curious what's the average autumn that you've had in they're for the last 10 years. >> i think. >> i don't have that stabilization we implemented
10:53 pm
this policy of amortizing both blue cross blue shield and the delta dental and the city plan we implemented it i think 6 years ago but we could go back and get that information to you there was a period because the premiums went up so high a lot of people left and left us with a surplus in stabilization we spent down the surplus last year. >> i have one other question regarding the long term disability insurance i noticed a decrease of 7.1 percent over and over something like that which is curious to me. >> the decrease was based on our agreeing to give a percentage to the insurance
10:54 pm
company with a low amount of smokers so they decreased our amount and luckily only 2.7 percent of our employees are smokers the national average is 22 percent. >> i'm happy to see the decrease. >> thank you. >> okay. thank you colleagues, any further questions okay mr. rose, can we go to your report. for number one. >> yes. on page 7 shown in table one of the total estimated city and member costs for delta plans and long term disability and life insurance is 63 million dollars plus in 2017 which is a
10:55 pm
4.79 increase in the 2016 the fidelity estimated cost for the health and dental plan as well as the long term disability and life insurance for the city itself in 2017 is $581 million approximately 24.3 or an increase in the 4 hundred million people in 2016 we recommend that you approve that ordinance. >> thank you mr. rose any questions for the budget analyst anyone wish to comment commissioner or hss fellow commissioner ms. breslin a hero and want to recognize here if there are any other commissioners, i apologize but anyone want to comment you'll have 2 minutes and additional

10:57 pm
health care plan and calling this the new city plan a misleading and will confuse the members when the medicaid retirees are removed the only members remaining will be actives and early retirees they're the highest cost and there will be little subsidy left for the next year there are under 2000 members there has been no explanation how this plan will be sustainable the only plan the retirees have available to move out of area it only covers methodology retirees no explanation of how medicare of employees living outside of the u.s. are covered they cover the medicare retirees seeing local
10:58 pm
dollars it is a good choice as last year but not a mandated. >> one more statement. >> sure. sure. >> to the rushed many questions have been met unanswered this causes a lot of confusion and distrust and will you put a lot of staff at extra work thank you. >> thank you, commissioner. >> next speaker, please. >> my name is july 4th kit are retired city employee and a resident of district 7 i have here letters from the protect our benefits president larry on his views and oath copies for everyone. >> i just want to say i have for many, many years been in city plan one and want to continue in that plan the city plan is important to keep because not all decreases take
10:59 pm
medicare the highly skilled decreases treating a serious disease didn't take medicare the differences of quality of services the city plan allows access to all decreases and freedom of choice that is the plan you want to do away with it is a self-plan administrative code by the united health care that provides a visit to all an actual decrease for a second opinion not the case in what is proposed in the change thank you thank you for your time. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> chief financial officer i've been asked by director dodd to read into the record a letter that she received from greg the commission on the health service board dear kablth republican
11:00 pm
thank you for your offer to remain on the finance committee for the fully funded medicare ppo plan that replaces the blue shield 65 plus plan and the self-insured plan for retirees as a commissioner and former chief financial officer for the department of health and former acting chief financial officer for the health service i studied the issues thoroughly and took time from meeting with our actuary before voting i remain convinced the plan will have broader geographic come over and a lower cost than the plan that replaces i understand the concerns of retired members that worry about access to theory physicians and hospital i too am a medicare eligible retiree and
11:01 pm
will be losing my blue shield conform i was concerned about losing any says, however, i'm satisfied this will not be an issue u h c has data indicating 94 percent of physicians already participating in this plan and those physicians current provide 95 percent plus of the services in addition no changes in the covered services member cops are lower and an importantly the total monthly cost is lower than the blue shield 65 plus plan city plan and even the kaiser permanente medicare advantage plan plus - >> i have plus a fully insured plan no risk of under funding that will require the retention reserves for a self-funded plan
11:02 pm
adoption of this plan was 4.5 percent increase in costs to the overall medicare population versus and 13 plus there from the continuation of the preexisting plan in terms of cost containment it reduces the liability for forced employment retirement i urge the budget and finance to support this plan seller greg health system. >> okay. >> next speaker, please. >> herbert wiener first, i want to announce i hold shares in united health 98 of them. >> my concern is about the city health plan for one thing it is a very good health plan the enar very of the rest of the country a comprehensive plan the people who are members are satisfied with that
11:03 pm
now, one concern i have is that okay. you're going to eliminate this plan for retirees eventually and eliminate for actives and retirees 65 years of age this is a road to that the other concern is okay. you will have we have two new plans now as retirees either kaiser permanente and the united health plan some people swear by kaiser permanente and not everyone is happy with the plan and the only choice you have is united health the ppo, now the rates are very low for the ppo for united health however, there is nothing to stop them from jacking up the rates and the only alternative is kaiser permanente now suppose
11:04 pm
that kaiser permanente and united health jack i am the prices like the other ribbon barons in 1998 the rates went up for the city health plan sky-high and people fled as a result of that if the rates go sky-high where will people go maybe san francisco general hospital i don't know. but this is really a disaster in my opinion that was rushed through i think the message was pleased you have to approve this and make the wrong decision quickly this is the wrongs way to do business and i think we should protest is this should be perpetual this is on outrage thank you >> okay. thank you very much
11:05 pm
anyone wish to comment. >> okay seeing none, public comment is closed. colleagues if any questions or comments. >> otherwise let's entertain a motion. >> through the chair i mean i appreciated ms. defendant's deposition explanation not only in committee but the information i'm comfortable with moving forward i have to hear from the members of the public or the health commission i'll move to send to the full board with positive recommendation. >> motion by supervisor tang and a seconded by supervisor yee and without objection madam clerk call items two and three together. >> the resolution for the san francisco municipal transportation agency on behalf of the city to execute a grant application all the time and recommended documents from the state of california housing and sustainable community program as as joint applicant with the the

points those two projects on fell and eddy have requested that the city the sfmta sign on as as joint applicant those resolutions before you authorize the sfmta to officially sign as planners for the cap & trade fund the two resolutions were originally heard at the land use committee, however, after the hearing the state released on application which provided specific language that must be included in its final resolutions indicating the transit agency has the authority to sign on as a joint applicant those resolutions have been amended and i have distributed the amended versions essentially oh, and based on the changes their referred to the budget committee the two resolutions function as a apply forceps and
11:08 pm

11:12 pm
work b will go to the nonprofit developer and the only true grant part is to the sfmta. >> is there any advantage of these organizations to take the loan is if later than usual i mean. >> the - i understand the loan is a loan that will be paid back but a very, very long term loan that functions as as grant at the end of the term they'll refinance it and do it again. >> so it saves the city money we don't have to provide the gap funding for that. >> okay i don't completely understand why we're doing this but - >> we'll far brief to use the state than the local funds. >> oh, okay.
