HEALTH CARE MANAGER JIM LUX RETIRING

Health Care Manager Jim Lux is retiring from the WFCA! Jim has served as Health Care Manager for nine years, and during that time he has navigated extensive changes in the health care market, most notably the Affordable Care Act.

His analysis of trends and experience helped guide the important decisions to keep premiums steady while the association offered one of the best health care programs available to the fire service. Jim has already begun taking some well-deserved time off and we wish him a very happy retirement!

The association plans to hire a new Health Care Manager by this Spring. In the meantime, WFCA staff is here to assist members with health care questions and issues that may arise. You may reach us by calling 800.491.9322, 360.943.3880 or emailing wfca@wfca.wa.gov.
