Health Care for City Employees

City Workers Keep Our City Running. They Deserve Amazing $0 Health Care.

New York is a City of endless possibilities and opportunities for its residents. But living in this City presents unique challenges. These challenges are met in stride by the thousands of City workers who hustle every day to make this City the best, most livable version of itself for everyone who calls it home.

According to a recent study by SHRM, 88 percent of  U.S. employees surveyed rank health care as the most important benefit to them. Now more than ever, health care is at the forefront of every New Yorker’s mind. Our City faces the aftermath of the pandemic, and difficulties include worsened health conditions due to delayed treatments, rising costs and long Covid.

MetroPlusHealth is a health plan for City workers by City workers. We understand City workers because we are one. City jobs can have higher health risks than others.

Firefighters often experience physical injuries due to fighting fires. That includes physical pain from the physical nature of the job, lung cancer due to smoke inhalation, heart disease and other maladies. Sanitation and park workers deal with the elements and can encounter health issues, including frostbite, hypothermia, heat stroke, etc. Teachers are often on their feet and deal with an emotional toll due to stress, eye strain and hearing loss. We risk our health to keep this City running. MetroPlusHealth believes all City workers should get quality, comprehensive care for $0.

City workers should NOT have to pay a co-pay to see a doctor, and that is what makes us different.

With MetroPlusHealth’s Gold Plan for City employees, members have access to the following:

  • $0 premiums, deductibles, copays, unlimited telehealth visits and mental health care.
  • $0 24/7 virtual access to doctors and therapists.
  • More than 34,000 top providers and sites across the five boroughs, 110 urgent care centers like CityMD, Northwell Health-GoHEALTH Urgent Care and more. Our network of over 40+ hospitals NYU Langone, Mount Sinai, NYC Health + Hospitals, Montefiore and more.
  • Free dietitian and physical therapy visits are important parts of holistic health that other insurers do not offer comprehensive coverage on.
  • Low-cost optional prescription drug add-on.
  • Fitness reimbursements – up to $1000 per year!
  • Reimbursement of up to $300 per year for participating in a weight loss program.
  • Through a single point of entry, the MetroPlusHealth Gold Plan provides high-quality benefits and care management; many of those benefits come at no cost to the employee.

MetroPlusHealth Gold health plan is available to ALL New York City employees, their qualified domestic partners and eligible dependents, and non-Medicare eligible retirees.

City workers are the lifeblood of our great City. The Gold plan for City workers understands that health care goes beyond annual visits with $0 mental and nutritional care, which can improve the quality of life for the diverse and inspiring individuals that work and live in NYC.
