STRS to hold health care discussion meetings throughout the state; you are strongly urged to sign up: first come, first served

Health Care Discussion Meetings

From the STRS website:

STRS Ohio and the Health Care Advocates for STRS invite you to join us at one of the meetings listed below. At these meetings, we’ll be sharing a proposal for a possible legislative initiative that increases member and employer contributions to support the STRS Ohio Health Care Program for current and future retirees. We also want to share what we see happening to health care costs in the future — and what you should be preparing for in retirement.

Each Health Care Discussion meeting will begin at 7 p.m. and include a special half-hour presentation. Audience members will then be invited to ask questions and share comments. Meetings will end by 8:30 p.m. Everyone who attends a meeting will be given an opportunity to complete a survey.

Due to limited seating at each meeting site, advance registration is required and is on a first-come basis. Click here to register online for a Health Care Discussion meeting. You may also register for a meeting by calling STRS Ohio’s Member Services Center toll-free at 1-888-227-7877. A written confirmation of your registration will be sent to you, along with directions to the meeting location.
