Health and Welfare

The City of Alameda has contracted with the CalPERS’s Public Employee’s Medical and Hospital Care Act (PEMHCA) program, for the purpose of providing medical insurance benefits for all full time eligible employees and eligible retirees. The CalPERS Board of Administration administers the health benefits program and determines the benefit design, providers, and premiums.

The City shall make a monthly contribution for each employee toward a Flexible Benefits Amount (FBA) as agreed to within the individual Bargaining Group’s Memorandum of Understandings (MOU) - City of Alameda Benefits Summary.  In the event the City’s FBA is insufficient to pay the full medical premium required, a payroll deduction is taken from the employee’s earning to cover the different in cost, on a pre-tax basis.

Each health plan’s Sumary of Benefits (SBC) and glossary, are available here for viewing.
