Message from PURA Benefits Committee
“PURA believes that prudent retiree health insurance
decisions should be determined by value, service and
dependability. Your health insurance is important to your
well-being and peace of mind. Choosing an insurance plan
on the basis of price alone can be risky and costly.”
