Health Insurance Trust
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 now we have the chance to do so.
Effective January 1, 2019, all active and retired firefighters benefits will be provided by the IAFF Local 587 Health Insurance Trust Fund. We believe based on the information provided by CIGNA that we can provide you the same or even a better package of benefits for less than what you are currently paying.
This is exactly what we have done. For all active and retired fighters, we have bundled medical, dental and vision benefits for less than what you are currently paying for just medical, see enclosed 2019 Retiree Rates. Coverage through the IAFF Local 587 Health Insurance Trust Fund will be administered by CIGNA.
The medical benefits duplicate those offered by the City. Dental and vision benefits are an improvement over those currently offered by the City. Click this link to see the Plan Highlights of benefits and this link to see your Contributions. More comprehensive summaries and a full summary plan description will be forthcoming.
We are excited for the opportunity to take control of these benefits and offer our membership the best coverage for the money.
