    IAFF Local 587 Health Insurance

    You may or may not know that for years the Union has been trying to break away from the City's medical, dental and vision plans. We have always believed that we could provide better benefits for our members and retirees, and in 2018 we had the chance to do so. 

    In 2019, we bundled medical, dental and vision benefits for less than what our members had been paying for just medical. The medical benefits duplicated those offered by the City. Dental and vision benefits were improved over those offered by the City.

    For the 2020 year, we will continue to offer our Active Employees the Cigna NPOS plan bundled with Vision and Dental at a minimal cost increase.

    Our Non-Medicare Retirees and our Medicare Retirees not eligible for Medicare Parts A & B or with dependents will also be offered the Cigna NPOS bundled plan, but their monthly contributions will be reduced.

    Our Medicare Part A & B Retirees and those with spouses also enrolled in Medicare Parts A&B, will now have the option to enroll in either Cigna or Aetna for supplemental insurance.  This provides more options and possible cost savings to those members.

    We continue to strive to provide the best coverage at the best rates for our members.

    Contact Lens Reimbursement

    CONTACT LENS ALLOWANCE FOR DEPENDENTS UNDER 19.  The Board of Trustees of the IAFF Local 587 Health Insurance Trust Fund (Trust) approved increasing the contact lens benefit for children aged 19 years and under by removing the annual maximum allowance on in-network contact lens purchases for the 2020 Plan year.

    This increase in benefit will terminate on December 31st, 2020.

    The member is required to fill out a reimbursement form and provide appropriate documentation to be reimbursed.  Reimbursement shall be limited to reasonable and customary costs of children’s contacts per each set purchased. 

    Reimbursement requests for expenses during January 1, 2020 - December 31, 2020 may be turned in at any time prior to March 31, 2021. 

    Reimbursement requests shall be submitted to the Benefits Administrator by mailing a reimbursement form and required back up information to:
