Whereas, The DER wants to ensure that health plan benefit rate projections for 2021 are as accurate as possible; and

 

Whereas, the City’s benefits consultant will gather current cost and utilization data from UnitedHealthcare and OptumRx to provide benefit premium rate projections based on the City’s 2021 anticipated health plan benefit design structure; and

 

Whereas, The DER wishes to communicate 2021 benefit rates to employees and retirees prior to the fall open enrollment period; and

 

Whereas, The DER has requested that Gallagher Benefits Services calculate 2021 health plan rate projections for premium tiers in all plans offered to active employees and retirees; now, therefore, be it
