State Switches Health Care Provider From Cigna To Blue Cross/Blue Shield — VSEA’s Bellini Raises Red Flags

“I’ll believe it when I see it,” [VSEA Board and Benefits Advisory Committee Member Dave] Bellini said of the proposed savings [from switching providers]. “How much cheaper was Blue Cross’ bid? Did we see it in writing?” 

Notes: The switch comes the same year state employees enjoyed three premium holidays. VSEA representatives voted to stay with Cigna but they were defeated by others in the room with a vote.
