Olympia Insider: SB 5905

Senate Bill 5905 seeks to modify employee eligibility for health insurance benefits for state employees working less than 30 hours a week. The bill would affect members of State Employees International Union (SEIU) 1199 (nurses) and SEIU 925 (University of Washington physicians). SEIU 775, which covers home care workers, including parent providers, would NOT be affected. If you provide home care under MPC or respite, the bill does not affect your insurance.
