Health Benefit Waiver Option:
The Health Benefit Waiver Option is a choice you can make to waive health insurance coverage under the City’s health insurance plan, and instead receive $300 per year (single coverage) or $500 per year (family coverage) from the City. This amount will be deposited into the Flexible Benefits Reimbursement account in your name to help pay for qualified out of pocket medical expenses incurred by you or your family members. In order to qualify to participate in this plan, you must have health insurance coverage from another provider and show proof of that coverage. After providing proof of other health insurance coverage, you and any covered family member must sign a waiver of COBRA coverage.
To enroll complete a Health Benefit Waiver Option Agreement form and submit to Benefits Division.
