The City is doing a review to confirm that all dependents of City employees and retirees enrolled in the City’s Health Benefits Program are eligible. This process is called the Dependent Eligibility Verification Audit.
If you are a City employee or retiree and have any enrolled dependents on your City health benefits coverage, you should have already received a letter explaining the audit.
If you are the only person covered by your City Health Benefits Program, you would not have received the letter. The audit does not affect people who do not have enrolled dependents.
Reason for Verification Audit
The City is conducting the dependent verification audit to make sure that only eligible dependents receive health benefits.
The City has a responsibility to manage health care costs and ensure that health plans offered through the City cover only those who meet the eligibility criteria.
If you have questions or concerns about the audit and the letters related to the verification process, you can get information and assistance from the Dependent Eligibility Verification Center.
