BY COUNCILOR KRAUSE:
RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are hereby authorized to execute the amended Exhibit A to service agreement with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, substantially in the form of that on file in the office of the city clerk as Public Document No. ____________, to remove administration of prescription drug coverage effective October 1, 2007, but otherwise continue to provide administrative services, stop loss insurance and care support program to the city’s group health insurance plans; payable from the group health fund.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This amended Exhibit A with Blue Cross/Blue Shield is a result of the city’s decision to contract with ClearScript, a pharmacy benefit manager, for the administration of prescription drug coverage. Due to the removal of prescription drug coverage from the Blue Cross/Blue Shield service agreement, there is a reduction in city expenses payable to Blue Cross/Blue Shield, effective October 1, 2007. This amendment reflects the reduced administrative fees associated with that change through December 31, 2007.
