Medical Plans

The City's health insurance plan is self-insured and self-administered with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona (BCBSAZ) as our in-network provider. Members may choose among four different medical plans depending upon their needs.


The four medical plans offered are:

  • Choice PPO Plan (80/20) - This plan features 80% coverage after the $300 per person/$900 family deductible has been met for in-network services. PPO BCBSAZ providers are considered as in-network for this plan. $2,300 out of pocket annual maximum per person.
  • Copay Choice PPO Plan - There is a $20 copay for office visits. PPO BCBSAZ providers are considered in-network. $4,000 per person/$12,700 family out of pocket annual maximum.
  • Basic Choice Plan (50/50) - This plan offers catastrophic coverage for the individual with few medical expenses. $550 deductible per person/$1,650 family, coinsurance 50/50, $5,550 out of pocket annual maximum per person. PPO BCBSAZ providers are considered as in-network.
