CEWW Health Insurance & Workers’ Compensation Consortium Coordination: Co-Ser 602
The CEWW Health Insurance Consortium coordination service coordinates with school districts, third party administrators, stakeholders, and consultants to provide health insurance coverage to the Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) and 15 component school districts’ active employees and retirees.
Services include central registration for all participants, central billing, benefit analysis, plan design, cost control measures, funding, bonding, auditing, claims management, and all other requirements necessary in providing quality health coverage. This service provides accounting and budgeting services for the over $100 million health insurance consortium and makes recommendations to the board of directors comprised of 15 school superintendents, the BOCES district superintendent, and 4 labor representatives. In 2020-21, the Benefits Coordination Office was created to provide for central registration and billing for the consortium. We have a Benefits Director providing administrative leadership over both consortia.
The CEWW Workers Compensation service provides coordinated oversight with school districts, third party administrators, stakeholders, and consultants to manage the consortium comprising of 16 component school districts and the BOCES. We manage the budget, work to reduce overall costs, improve the quality of service, provide timely information, increase the effectiveness of cost containment programs, and provide local control of funding and reserves. This service provides accounting and budgeting services for the consortia and makes recommendations to the board of directors.
