  2.  Calendar year 1995 shall be the last year in which any employees of the department of labor and industrial relations will be covered under health insurance benefit plans that have been independently negotiated by the division of employment security.  For calendar year 1996, and each calendar year thereafter, the department of labor and industrial relations and the office of administration shall jointly determine the financial transactions that will be required in order to account for the federal unemployment compensation administration funds that shall be used as the employer's contribution towards benefit plans for eligible employees, retirees or dependents.  Benefit plans shall be provided pursuant to the provisions of this subsection.

  (1)  Beginning January 1, 1996, the Missouri consolidated health care plan shall provide group health care benefits for all the employees of the department of labor and industrial relations who meet the eligibility requirements set forth for officers, employees or retirees of the state or its participating agencies as set forth in chapter 103.  These employees shall be offered the same benefits plan under the same terms and conditions as other state employees.  The Missouri consolidated health care plan shall not assume responsibility for any liabilities incurred by the department, or its eligible employees, retirees or dependents prior to January 1, 1996.

  (2)  During calendar year 1995, the department of labor and industrial relations, the office of administration and the Missouri state employees' retirement system shall determine the feasibility of transitioning employees of the department of labor and industrial relations who meet the eligibility requirements set forth for officers, employees or retirees of the state or its participating agencies, over to the group life insurance benefit plan provided by the Missouri state employees' retirement system.
