Attention active PPOA members:
As most of you are aware, medical and dental premiums for 2024 are increasing nationwide and Los Angeles County is no exception. In fact, the new 2024 medical plan rates for County employees will be subject to an average increase of 10.4% more than the 2023 rates.
The new rates negotiated between County representatives and insurance carriers will take effect January 1, 2024. It is important for members to take these increases into consideration as open enrollment runs until October 31, 2023.
According to a letter sent from the LA County CEO to the Board of Supervisors on 9/12/23, insurance carriers have determined that health plan increases “are anticipated to be required to address projected price inflation, technology advances, plan utilization patters, and cost shifting from public to commercial payers.”
