The 2015 operating budget allocated funds to the Office of the State Actuary (OSA) in order to provide the Legislature with access to expert healthcare actuarial services. Because OSA does not currently have qualified health actuaries on staff, OSA has contracted with an outside consultant, Willis Towers Watson, to ensure the legislature has immediate access to expert healthcare actuarial analysis for Medicaid and healthcare benefits offered through the Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) program. Additionally, OSA has been partnering with non-partisan legislative staff, the Health Care Authority, and the Office of Financial Management to increase understanding of the Medicaid and PEBB healthcare landscape in Washington.

Should you have any questions regarding our office’s role in healthcare actuarial services, please contact us 360.786.6140, or by email at
