1 In order to be eligible, non-profit employers must have a purchase of service contract with a state agency or receives 50% or more of its gross annual revenue from grants or funding from the state, federal government, municipality or a combination thereof.

2 Nonstate public employers include a municipality, boards of education, quasi-public agencies or public libraries.

3 (1) Figures include dependents and retirees. (2) Figures do not include dependents or retirees, for which information is unavailable.

4 The state currently collects approximately $8 million a year from the premium tax on health insurance policies procured by municipalities.

5 Current law exempts new or renewed contracts or policies written to provide coverage to municipal employees under a plan procured pursuant to CGS 5-259(i) from the premiums tax. Therefore, MEHIP participants are currently exempt from the premiums tax. As a result, there would not be a loss to the premiums tax should MEHIP participating non-state public employers shift coverage to the state employee health plan.

6 CT Public Sector Healthcare Cost & Benefit Survey, 2009.

7 There are approximately 181,000 hospital outpatient surgeries each year. It is unknown how many non-hospital surgeries occur annually. An additional 19,000 are assumed.
