[Adopted 10-7-1998 by Ord. No. 98-25]
Editor's Note: This ordinance also repealed former Art. III, Prescription Drug Cards for Retirees, adopted 9-4-1985.
The Common Council hereby extends the benefit of the one-dollar co-pay prescription drug card under the City of Ithaca Health Benefits Plan to any retiree or survivor presently covered by the plan who desires the benefit of the one-dollar co-pay prescription drug card at the appropriate increase in health insurance premiums paid.
The retiree or survivor who elects to receive the one-dollar co-pay prescription drug card shall have the option of revoking his/her elected choice of receiving the prescription drug card once within the calendar year in which the option has been exercised.
Upon revoking the one-dollar co-pay prescription drug card option, the retiree or survivor shall return to receiving the benefit of having covered prescription drug expenses reimbursed at a rate of 80% under the major medical portion of the City of Ithaca Health Benefits Plan, provided that all appropriate deductions have been met.
The Director of Human Resources shall be directed to review the City's charges for health insurance and bring a proposal for standardization back to the Budget and Administration Committee.
