FINANCE AND AUDIT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Gary O'Bannon, Human Resources, explained the difference between the proposed combined health insurance plan and the current plan and its effects on employees. The current plan would have a 2 year rate guarantee. Troy Schulte, Budget Department, explained that there would have been an increase to the Police Department health coverage cost. Their plan covers several things not covered by the City's plan example: infertility coverage, outside of network coverage for retirees. The combined plan would have resulted in no coverage of this kind for the police or an increase in cost to them. The City will still see a savings of an estimated. $500,000 without the combined plan. Deputy Chief Roberts and Deputy Chief Nicholas explained that the health care packet that was presented to the board was approved until the issue of PPO, Coventry coverage and the infertility issue were revisited. He believes that the Police Department still would like to move toward combined services as directed by the Council and the Police Board. The Chief added that police staff do not have long and short term disability coverage and city staff don't have fertility benefit so there are still a number of issues that can be improved upon. There was some discussion about the breakdown in communication for the original ordinance approval. Dr. Eddy stated that the real issue was to make sure that it doesn't happen again and that employees both city and police get the best coverage possible.
