Explanation
BACKGROUND: To maintain the employee insurance programs in accordance with the negotiated labor contracts, appropriation is necessary for the continuation of all employee benefits programs. To determine the amounts necessary for the annual appropriation, current utilization and projected future claims were analyzed and trended on the basis of an 18-month trend of actual city utilization in conjunction with industry trends, as well as actuarial services. The appropriation included 2020 budgeted amounts, employee premium contributions, COBRA premium deposits, and prescription drug rebate deposits.

This ordinance is contingent on the passage of the 2020 Operating Budget (ordinances 2925-2019, 2926-2019, and 2927-2019).
