New guidelines have been issued by the Comptroller's Office which now require that, under our health plan, prior authorization be obtained  for compound medications containing non-FDA approved ingredients.  The issuance of the new guidelines was made by the Comptroller's Office without the consent of SEBAC.  As a result SEBAC has filed a grievance contesting the state's right to unilaterally establish guidelines without SEBAC's consent.  Follow the link to an FAQ issued by the Comptroller's Office regarding the new guidelines.

The Appropriations Committee has released its proposed budget for 2015/16 (FY16) and 2016/17 (FY17).  The proposal appears to indicate that there are no 'across the board' layoffs for State employees, no early retirement plans, and no furloughs.

Most agency budgets remove or limit inflation and all vacant positions will be eliminated.  The licensing of accountants will remain at the Board of Accountancy in the Secretary of State's Office and not move to the Dept. of Consumer Protection as the governor proposed.

The State's contribution to the State Employee Retirement System is fully funded.
