New Optional Rider Rates Effective July 1, 2015

The optional rider rates for the health plans have been finalized and will be effective
July 1, 2015.  Due to the delay in the finalization of the rates which occurred after the
in-service payroll for the summer was completed, the city was not able to apply the new rates in the summer checks.  However, they were able to apply the rates to July pension checks. 

We are expecting a “catch-up” applied to the in-service payrolls following the summer as has happened in the past.  As soon as we have confirmation as to how this will be applied, we will share that information.

GHI-CBP Old Rate July 1, 2015
Individual (In-service) $6.88 $6.42
Family (In-service) $17.43 $16.26
Individual (Retiree) $126.88 $126.42
Family (Retiree) $232.43 $231.26
Medicare $107.17 $107.08
