Health Care & Benefits Division

The State Employee Group Benefit Advisory Council (SEGBAC) was created under MCA 2-15-122 to provide Department of Administration (DOA) with a body of state employees and retirees to provide advice on health plan matters. The council must include one retired state employee and specific labor organization representation.

The role of SEGBAC is to provide advice on State Employee Group Plan matters and to meet quarterly, as presented in MCA 2-18-810.

SEGBAC welcomes input from employees, retirees, and other interested citizens.
