- Group Insurance Commission Annual Reports downloads
The mission of the Group Insurance Commission (GIC) is to provide high-value health insurance and other benefits to Commonwealth of Massachusetts employees, retirees, and their survivors and dependents. The GIC also covers housing and redevelopment authorities as well as certain municipalities that elect to join the GIC. The agency works with vendors selected through competitive bidding to offer cost-effective benefits produced with careful plan design and rigorous ongoing management.
Changing seasons is particularly appropriate for this Fiscal Year 2016 Annual Report with the major transformations that took place during the past year. The GIC’s Executive Director, Dolores L. Mitchell, retired after more than 29 years at the helm. She had a long track record of innovation and advocacy for the agency and was synonymous with the agency itself. This change led to an important time for the Commission which took a step back to define its mandate and to choose its next leader. We were well served in the interim by Ray Campbell, one of our former commissioners, who did a masterful job of bridging the leadership change while helping staff undergoing its own turnover with the transition.
