Update for the 2015 Retiree Open Enrollment

The FY 2015 open enrollment for non-Medicare eligible retirees was held May 9 through May 23, 2014. Insurance guides and forms are available below for your information. The left column contains information for the non-Medicare eligible retiree or spouse, and the right column provides information for the Medicare eligible retiree or spouse. Specific benefits questions can be sent to or you can contact the Benefits Team on 703.746.3785 if you need to make an appointment before arriving at Human Resources. 

New Aetna Dental Coverage, effective July 1, 2014: For the exception of Line of Duty retirees whose health and dental insurance premiums are the responsibility of the City and are 100% paid by the City, retirees are not eligible to participate in the new Aetna dental plans. The City requested that retirees be eligible to participate in the new dental plan; however, the carriers, including Aetna, who responded to the City’s RFP advised that they are simply not set up to offer City retirees individual dental plans into retirement. 

 We have learned that Aetna offers individual dental plans and if you are interested in pursuing one, please see the link that follows:

 Retiree Dominion Dental Coverage: If you elected to continue dental coverage into retirement with Dominion Dental and your individual policy is currently in place, the City’s change to Aetna dental should have no impact on your plan. Your individual policy with Dominion Dental should continue without any problem as long as you wish. 

Message regarding Kaiser Permanente cards indicating coinsurance: 


All of the ID cards recently sent to current and newly enrolled Kaiser Permanente (KP) members are wrong and should be discarded at once. Please contact KP's Customer Service Team at 301.468.6000 to request new ID cards. You will be asked to provide either your member ID number or Social Security Number. The City's KP Group Number is 4073.

Retirees who are currently enrolled in the (KP) DHMO plan and will remain enrolled in the new plan year should continue to use their existing ID cards and show them when services are rendered.

Retirees who are newly enrolled in the KP DHMO plan effective July 1, 2014 will receive new ID cards on or shortly after July 1st. The new member ID cards are to be released on Monday, June 30th and mailed directly to new members’ homes.

The health insurance reimbursement program is available to all eligible City retirees who participate in outside health insurance plans as well as those who participate in City-sponsored health insurance plans. The purpose of the reimbursement program is to help defray the steadily rising cost of health insurance for those retirees who are not participating in a City-sponsored health insurance program. The City reserves the right to amend or terminate any provision of this program.

Retired full-time employees receiving lifetime monthly benefits from a primary City-sponsored retirement plan who were enrolled in a City health insurance plan at the time of retirement are eligible for the program. Retired police officers and firefighters participating in the defined contribution retirement income plan must have at least 20 years of City Service to be eligible. If you have any questions concerning the amount of the monthly reimbursement and how to elect participation please contact the City's Human Resources Department.
