EXTEND HEALTH HAS CHANGED THEIR NAME!

    PEBP announced late last year that Extend Health has become Towers Watson's "One Exchange" in January 2014. The PEBP website information goes on to say the change is a name change ONLY, that nothing else will be different. Participants in Extend Health will have the same benefit advisors, the same Medicare marketplace, and the same phone number (1-888-598-7545) should you need to contact them. When these changes take place, participants will receive a notice from Extend Health with additional details. In other news from Towers Watson, PEBP has announced that there will be visits in June from Towers Watson to provide additional participant education. Click on the link below for visit information.

    **UPDATE**

    **RGJ VS. NEVADA PERS LAWSUIT**

    The Nevada Supreme Court issued a ruling in this case on November 14, 2013. The Public Employees' Retirement System (PERS) notified retirees in late January of this year that they had to comply with one part of the order. The case was remanded back to the District Court level in Carson City for another hearing held April 11 where Judge Todd Russell concurred with the Supreme Court decision.
