The City offers a variety of supplemental benefit plans provided by several different vendors. These plans can provide you additional coverage in the event of specific incidents such as cancer or an accident. These plans are not intended to replace your traditional medical plan, but to supplement what you have already in place. The City does not sponsor or administer any of these plans. Your contract is directly with the vendor, however you may be able to have the premiums or fees paid via payroll deduction. Please contact the Benefits Office if you would like vendor contacts for any of these plans.
