The City of Columbus offers full time (30+ hours per week) employees a variety of benefit options such as paid holidays, health care benefits, voluntary life & ADD insurance, estate planning, identity theft protection and various wellness discounts.
The City offers two SIHO-administered health benefits plans for our employees and their eligible dependents, as well as preventive health care coverage, and an extensive network of in-network providers. One option is a Preferred Provider Plan (PPO), and the second option is a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) which offers a Health Savings Account (HSA) that is portable and can grow over time. The Health Summary Plan Description (SPD) for Medical and Prescription Drug Benefits booklet describes your medical and prescription drug benefits and serves as the Summary Plan Description (SPD) and Plan document for the City of Columbus Employee Benefit Plan (“the Plan”). It sets forth the provisions of the Plan that provide for payment or reimbursement of Plan benefits. You can find it at City of Columbus SPD.
