In 2018, the City of Madison is participating in ETF Program Option 14: Local Deductible Plan without Dental. City of Madison employees will not have access to ETF’s Uniform Dental Benefits.
The City of Madison offers employees the choice of any plan offered through Employee Trust Funds’ Wisconsin Public Employer Group Health Insurance Program Option 14, including three health maintenance organizations (HMO) offering networks in the Dane County service area. Employees may sign up for health insurance upon starting employment with the City or during the annual open enrollment period.
Current employees may not enroll outside of open enrollment. However, if you are already enrolled and have a qualifying change of family status, you may add dependents onto your plan. Please note that there are time limits for this change. Please make changes online, or submit a Health Insurance Change Form to Human Resources.
These premiums apply to all full-time employees except Compensation Groups 11, 12, 13, 14, 41 and 42.

Expanded Premium Rate Charts
Due to a change in Employee Trust Funds’ billing practices, no health insurance premiums will be collected through payroll deduction in December 2017. Beginning with January 2018 health insurance coverage, premiums will be collected via payroll deduction for the month of coverage, rather than premiums being collected for the following month’s coverage, as is current practice.
Prescription drug insurance is provided through Navitus Health Solutions. Employees who enroll in health insurance coverage are automatically enrolled in Navitus and will be issued a separate Navitus member card.
