COBRA participants enrolled in a Cigna Healthcare plan have direct access to hospital and specialists. This year, the Cigna LocalPlus plan is being introduced as a third healthcare plan option. However, the Cigna plans you are being offered at this time are subject to both Board approval and union ratification. If plan design and premium changes occur, you will be notified  and given the opportunity to make any necessary changes. Cigna Healthcare continues to be offered only to eligible COBRA participants.


Also, in accordance with the Affordable Care Act (ACA), medical, Rx costs, deductibles, and coinsurance are counted toward your Annual Maximum Out-of-Pocket (MOOP). Employees save more because once the MOOP has been reached, the employee will be covered 100 percent and will have no other healthcare costs to pay.
