Q: May I use the WageWorks Healthcare Card to pay for Lasik procedure? Does Superior Vision cover this procedure?

A: Yes, you may use the WageWorks card to pay for Lasik. The vision plan, Superior Vision, provides a one-time $300 Lasik benefit to help pay the cost. 


Q: Where can I find information regarding durable medical equipment coverage?

A: You can find that listed in the plan summary of benefits and coverage. It's a comprehensive list of what each plan covers. There is one for each of the three medical plans. On the Internet, go to cohemployeenews.com/openenrollment. Click on Library of Benefits Materials at the right, then click on a plan summary to see durable medical equipment coverage.


Q: If I am in the Cigna Limited Network plan and I experience acute symptoms or a life-threatening emergency while out of town, where can I seek immediate care?

A: If you need immediate care, you can use an urgent care facility or emergency room. In the case of a life-threatening emergency, seek care from the nearest emergency room. As soon as the emergency situation is stabilized, Cigna will work to transition your care back to network providers. Routine care is not covered unless it is provided by a network provider.


Q: I have had the voluntary life insurance with the city since I was hired. Now that I’m getting ready to retire, will I get to continue this coverage?

A: You can, but the rates will be different. Once you retire, you will have the option to keep your $10,000 of your life insurance at rate of $10.30; at the time of retirement, you will be given a conversion form for your voluntary life insurance, but premiums will be higher because it will be an individual policy instead of a group policy.
