Check mailbox

The No Surprises Act (NSA) was recently signed into law as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021. Effective for the benefit plan year beginning January 1, 2022, the NSA enacts a new transparency requirement on group health plans to prohibit surprise medical bills.  

Because of this new act, all City health plan members will receive new ID cards from WebTPA in January 2022. The cards will include the following information in clear writing:

  • Plan deductible
  • Out-of-pocket maximum limitation under our plan
  • Telephone number and website for a participant, beneficiary or enrollee to obtain information and assistance

Be on the lookout for new WebTPA cards to arrive by mail to your home address. If you do not receive a new card by the end of January, please contact HRBenefits@plano.gov.
