Human Resources is asking for your feedback about the city's health plan including the administration, communications and customer service.
The city has partnered with an independent research company, Decision Information Resources, Inc., to collect your feedback through an online survey. Your responses will be combined with those of other City of Houston employees. Your participation is voluntary, your answers will remain confidential; you will not be identified personally, and your individual information will not be shared or used for sales purposes.
By completing this survey, you can help identify possible opportunities for service improvement. It is important to remember, that the city's plan is self-funded. The city determines the benefits and wellness programs that are offered to you, and the cost that you pay for those benefits. Your health services vendor, Cigna, administers your benefits and provides resources to support the city's initiatives.
Please complete the survey by Friday, Oct. 2.
