What's New in FY 18/19

City Council discussed and approved recommended changes to employee health care benefits at its regular meeting on March 6. Changes to the plans include:

  • Adding naturopathic and acupuncture coverage to every plan within our current health care network.
  • Reducing the co-pay for physical therapy and chiropractic visits from $40 to $30 on the Cigna OAP In-Network and LocalPlus plans.
  • Extending the blood pressure incentive to spouses and partners on the city's health plan who maintain their blood pressure within the healthy range, or who are working with their doctor or a health coach toward that goal. The $20 per month incentive will continue for employees.
  • Eliminating the $50 deductible for in-network preventive care cleanings on the Cigna Dental PPO plan.
  • Increasing the annual maximum benefit by $200 the following plan year for those who get a preventive cleaning on the Cigna Dental PPO plan.

Effective July 1, Banner Health professionals and facilities will no longer be a part of the LocalPlus network. However, Arizona Care Network, Phoenix Children's Network (including Phoenix Children's Hospital), Dignity Health, and Abrazo will join Cigna Medical Group and HonorHealth as part of the LocalPlus network. This change does not affect the OAP In-Network, OAP or OAP + HSA plans.
