Every year, the City re-negotiates medical, dental, and vision insurance rates for the upcoming fiscal year, beginning October 1. Due to an increase in medical claim activity over the past year, the bid for 2020/2021 from our current carrier, Blue Cross, was 14.5% or $1,557,000 higher than 2019/2020. The City analyzed cost alternatives to the Blue Cross plan, including joining an association of municipalities in Southeast Idaho in an attempt to leverage potential cost savings with a higher number of covered lives. Bids were received from multiple insurance companies and while some plans were less expensive, they did not provide the continuity of services Blue Cross has continued to provide to City employees. In addition to increased costs to the health care plan along with forecasted financial impacts due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City is faced with a tight overall budget for the rest of this fiscal year, extending into the 2020/2021 fiscal year. As a result, City Council has determined that the only viable option with the current circumstances is to pass on a higher percentage of insurance costs to employees. This decision was not taken without a great deal of discussion of the impacts to the employees.Despite the raised employee premiums and plan modifications, the City still has a generous and highly competitive employee benefits package.

These effective providers are classified as Choice. On this Open Enrollment webpage, there are documents that describe how to search for a Choice provider on the Blue Cross website.

No. The deductibles remain the same, but the out-of-pocket coinsurance maximum has changed. See the out-of-pocket coinsurance maximum question below for further explanation.
The total cost of the insurance premium is split between the City and the employees. For the PPO, the City pays 86% of the total cost and the employees pay 14%.
The out-of-pocket coinsurance is the maximum amount the individual pays after the deductible is met. For example, an individual on the PPO would pay their deductible of $1,000, then 50% of the allowed amounts up to the out-of-pocket coinsurance maximum. For the individual, this out-of-pocket coinsurance maximum amount is $1,500.
In other words, on the PPO, an individual will pay the $1,000 deductible, then their portion of allowed amounts up to $1,500 for a total out-of-pocket of $2,500 (see equation below).
On the PPO, a family will pay the $1,000 deductible for up to 3 family members, then their portion of allowed amounts up to $4,500 for a total out-of-pocket of $7,500 (see equation below).
$3,000(1,000 x 3 family members)
The providers have been distinguished by in-network or out-of-network. Now the added distinction of being “Choice” has been added to help you save money on doctor’s visit co-pays.

The prescriptions are now on a 6 Tier schedule. This helps the consumer save money by opting for not only generic medications, but Blue Cross Choice generic drugs where possible. If your medications cost less than the co-pay, you pay the lower amount.
Additionally, there is a $250 deductible on the name brand medications which are the Tier 3, 4, 5, and 6 medications.
Here is where the prescriptions are listed:
In general, the changes are the split between the City and the Employee share of the cost; the monthly premiums; an addition of $100 to the deductible per IRS requirements; and the out-of-pocket coinsurance maximums. See below for more information on each of these.
The total cost of the insurance premium is split between the City and the employee. For the HSA, the City pays 94% of the total cost and the employee pays 6%.
Refer to the Premiums chart available on the Open Enrollment webpage to see the premiums for the plan year 2020-2021.
IRS guidelines have required an increase of $100 to the HSA deductible. For an individual on the HSA, the new deductible is $2,800. For a family on the HSA, the new deductible is $5,600.
The out-of-pocket coinsurance is the maximum amount the individual pays after the deductible is met. For example, an individual on the HSA would pay their deductible of $2,800, then 80% of the allowed amounts up to the out-of-pocket coinsurance maximum. For the individual, this out-of-pocket coinsurance maximum amount is $2,000.
On the HSA, an individual will pay the $2,800 deductible, then their portion of allowed amounts up to $2,000 for a total out-of-pocket of $4,800 (see equation below).
On the HSA, a family will pay the $2,800 deductible for up to 2 family members, then their portion of allowed amounts up to $4,000 for a total out-of-pocket of $9,600 (see equation below).
