Coronavirus and your benefits

Benefits updates

Medical Plan

In response to COVID-19, changes have been made to Medical Plan benefits related to COVID-19 testing and treatment, telemedicine, and more.

Learn about updates to the Medical Plan.

Employee Assistance Program

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP), administered by Cigna Behavioral Health, is available to members with medical coverage* through the Board of Pensions, their families, and anyone who lives with them. Through September 30, 2020, you have access to four additional private counseling sessions with a licensed clinician in Cigna's EAP network — for a total of 10 free sessions. These sessions can be virtual on your phone, tablet, or home computer, or face-to-face.

Read more about the EAP.

For retired members and employees not eligible for the EAP, Cigna is offering a separate 24-hour toll-free help line. Call 866-912-1687 to connect with qualified clinicians, including licensed social workers, professional counselors, and psychologists, who can provide support and guidance.

*The EAP is not available to members enrolled in Triple-S, GeoBlue, or the Medicare Supplement Plan. 

Dental Plan

When the American Dental Association lifts restrictions on non-urgent/emergency care, Aetna, the administrator of dental coverage through the Board of Pensions, will provide a three-month grace period for certain services which, under normal circumstances, would no longer be eligible for coverage.
