Cities, counties, and other governmental jurisdictions are responsible for the lifetime medical costs of their LEOFF 1 employees and retirees. For many years, these local governments have struggled with how to ensure LEOFF 1 participants receive necessary medical care while keeping costs sustainable. Some healthcare expenses approved by disability boards haven’t always been tied to medical necessity, and often there are other reasonable options for care than those imposed by the boards.
The LEOFF 1 Disability Board Best Practices Resource Guide contains valuable information for LEOFF 1 board members, board secretaries, and anyone involved with LEOFF 1 medical responsibilities and costs. The resource guide outlines key responsibilities, guidance, statutory requirements and provides sample policies to help navigate this complex issue.
The LEOFF 1 Disability Board Best Practices Resource Guide was developed by W. Scott Snyder of Ogden Murphy Wallace on behalf of AWC.
