HIGH DEDUCTIBLE HEALTH PLAN (HDHP)
The City offers two High Deductible Health plans; the Regional High Deductible Health Plan and the National High Deductible Health Plan. Both plans have the same plan design, however the Regional plan has the added benefit of significantly lower out of pocket costs to you when you receive services in the New England area.
With the High Deductible Health Plan, you can open up a Health Savings Account (HSA). As a retiree, you have the option of choosing whatever bank you want for your Health Savings Account. The City is currently transferring HSA custodians from Avidia Bank to BenefitWallet. If you are enrolled in the City's High Deductible Health plan and would like to open a Health Savings Account with the City's bank, please complete the HSA form Retiree must sign listed below and contact the benefits coordinator at 603-792-6809, or email email@example.com for instructions on how to open up an HSA with BenefitWallet.
