COORDINATION OF BENEFITS
Coordination of Benefits (COB) is a provision that applies to working retirees who have access to health coverage through their employer. COB shifts the primary cost of healthcare to the employer of the retiree. The retiree is still covered under the City of Providence health plan. The City’s plan acts as the secondary payer and covers the cost of any covered services not paid for by the working retiree’s health plan.
- If the only plan available to you is an HSA, you do not need to enroll (proof/documentation required)
