HEALTHCARE 99 - CHANGES TO PLAN FROM APRIL 8, 2015
There have been some changes and adjustments, most of them minor, to the Healthcare 99 plan. Please read the latest "Healthcare 99 Rules and Rates 2014-2015 as of April 8, 2015" booklet found on the Healthcare 99 tab. The Healthcare Committee regularly reviews the scheme and makes prudent changes as required to keep the scheme up to date and viable. The Healthcare 99 plan is very good value in today's healthcare market. Members who are concerned about the cost of their healthcare should certainly give this plan a good look. When compared to other schemes in the marketplace, Healthcare 99 is very competitive. It is funded by firefighters for firefighters.
