State Employee Group Benefit Advisory Council

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

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.

SEGBAC welcomes input from employees, retirees, and other interested citizens. If you would like to address the Council, contact Health Care and Benefits Division.

Health Care and Benefits Division will make reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities who wish to participate in public meetings. If you need an accommodation contact HCBD one week prior to the meeting date to describe the nature of the modification that you need.
