Health Care Commission

Employee Advisory Committee


2009 Quarterly Meetings


Establishment of the Employee Advisory Committee:

The Health Care Commission  re-implemented an Employee Advisory Committee (EAC) as provided by K.S.A. 75-6501(b) by adopting EAC By-laws on August 16, 1995. The Committee is composed of 21 members, 18 of whom are active employees and three are participating through Direct Bill. Each member serves a three-year term. Members are selected on the basis of geographic location, agency, gender, age, and plan participation in order to assure that a balanced membership representing a broad range of employee and Direct Bill members interests are represented.

The objectives of the Committee shall (1) be represented by one or more of its elected officers or their designees at each meeting of the HCC; (2) have access to the State Employee Health Plan (SEHP) staff; (3) provide input and feedback SEHP staff and the  HCC on the plan.
