Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, unless otherwise agreed, a governmental unit transferring its subscribers to the group insurance commission under section 23 of chapter 32B of the General Laws shall use current contribution ratios in existence for each class of plan for each collective bargaining unit in order to transfer to the commission. If a governmental unit was not offering both a preferred provider organization plan or an indemnity plan on the date of transfer to the commission, the governmental unit's initial contribution ratio toward the commission's preferred provider organization plans and indemnity plans shall be the ratio that the governmental unit was contributing toward its preferred provider organization plan or indemnity plan for each collective bargaining unit on that date.
