Monday, 29 November the Corpus Christi Independent School District is having a Special Called Meeting to select a health plan administrator for their self-funded employee welfare plan – http://echalkweb.ccisd.us/www/CorpusChristi/site/hosting/Board%20of%20Trustees/2012%20Agendas/10-29-12%20ENHANCED%20Special.pdf
Finalist are Blue Cross, Humana, Group & Pension Administrators and Mutual Assurance Administrators. The current plan administrator is Meritain, an Aetna owned third party administrator. Meritain did not make the short list.
Editor’s Note: Molly Mulebriar, ace investigative reporter on assignment in Nueces County, says rumors are that one of the deciding factors in awarding the contract this year will be based on local provider contracts between Christus Spohn and HCA. Smart money has Group & Pension Administrators getting the nod this year. However, Mulebriar hedges her bet and says Blue Cross may be the wild card.
