February 21, 2013

An act to amend Section 22800 of the Government Code, relating to public employees’ health benefits.


AB 695, as introduced, Mansoor. Public employees’ health benefits.
The Public Employees’ Medical and Hospital Care Act (PEMHCA), which is administered by the Board of Administration of the Public Employees’ Retirement System (PERS), authorizes the board to contract for health benefit plans for employees and annuitants, as defined. PEMHCA requires the state and each employee or annuitant to contribute a portion of the cost of providing the benefit coverage afforded under the approved health benefit plan in which the employee or annuitant is enrolled. Contributions and premiums paid under PEMHCA are deposited in the Public Employees’ Health Care Fund and the Public Employees’ Contingency Reserve Fund, which are continuously appropriated funds.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to a provision of the Public Employees’ Medical and Hospital Care Act.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


 Section 22800 of the Government Code is amended to read:

 (a) An employee or annuitant is eligible to enroll in an approved health benefit plan, in accordance with this part and the regulations of the board.
(b) Regulations may provide for the exclusion of employees on the basis of the nature, conditions condition, and type of their employment, including, but not limited to, short-term appointments, seasonal or intermittent employment, and employment of a like nature. However, no an employee may not be excluded solely on the basis of the hazardous nature of the employment.
