Today, UPE and your 008 Governing Board met with the Department on the unwinding of “MA Continuous Coverage.” The Department provided information on the number of renewals for the month of June along with the training plan and schedule of when that will commence.
Training will begin the week of March 20th during unit meetings so that the affected members will not have to find their own time to complete the training. In addition, there will be a “90-day Hold Harmless” for inadvertent errors or omissions for those who have not done renewals during their time with the Department.
UPE will have the opportunity to review the training materials before the implementation to ensure that it aligns with what our valued members need to be successful. We will continue to update our affected members if any new information arises.
