Council Approves Changes In City’s Health Plan

Published on October 08, 2014 by Larry Crippen

A resolution regarding some changes in the City’s Health Plan was up for approval at last night’s City Council session. One of the changes would include a $50 surcharge for smokers.

The City’s Human Resources Director Julie O’Connell responded to a question from Councilmember Brauninger regarding changes in the City’s Health Plan in regard to an increase to the City employees health package . . . .

 

Ms. O’Connell also responded to a question Councilmember Brauninger asked regarding how the plan “translates to the retirees” . . . .

 

Answering a question from Mr. Brauninger about how the City planned to police the tobacco issue, Ms. O’Connel said, those insured would sign an affidavit in regard to no tobacco use. She said, “It’s somewhat of an honor system.”

The plan was approved.
