Two plan options:

The two options to choose from are the Health Center Plan or Consumer Choice Plan, which include preventative care visits, annual physicals, mammograms, and colonoscopies covered 100% on either plan for members. 
The Consumer Choice Plan is designed for employees who like the financial benefit of a Health Savings Account (HSA) and lower monthly premiums. This plan may also benefit those who may live (or whose dependents may live) outside of the Fort Worth area and won't have easy access to one of the city's health center locations.
The Health Center Plan offers employees health centers in and around the Fort Worth area that are exclusively available to city employees, retirees and their dependents. These centers provide unlimited primary care services for employees during normal business hours, and may include extended business hours in some locations. Employees can expect to receive an appointment on the same or next business day for sick visits.
