There are more than a dozen health and benefits providers to deliver quality services to all members on the city’s health plan. Meritain Health, an Aetna company, is the insurance provider for the medical plan at the City of Fort Worth and Alite is the city's health and benefits support, available to assist employees with any health care questions or resources.   


Two plan options:

When it comes to medical coverage, the City offers these choices:
  • Health Center Plan (HCP) 
  • Consumer Choice Plan (CCP)

Option 1 - The Health Center Plan (FREE Primary Care Services in Health Centers)

The Health Center Plan offers unlimited primary care services for employees in multiple health centers in the Fort Worth area. Employees can expect to receive an appointment on the same or next business day for sick visits from the three dedicated Health Centers. Specialists are available at a $75 copay for in-network providers. Any medical care received from out-of-network providers is not covered. Call care coordinators to schedule your appointment at 800-574-0606.

Employees under this plan also have access to convenient satellite locations around North Texas. In most cases, they may not have same- or next-day appointments but will still be 100% covered with no copay or coinsurance required for those on the Health Center Plan. 

Option 2 - Consumer Choice Plan 

The Consumer Choice Plan is a high-deductible health plan (HDHP) in which you pay all medical and prescription drug costs up to the deductible before the insurance begins to pay. The Consumer Choice Plan offers in-network benefits only. When you need care, go to a Meritain Health, Aetna Company in-network doctor or facility. Preventive services, including annual checkups, children’s immunizations and an annual well woman exam are covered at 100% with no coinsurance, and the deductible is waived. If you request or your provider does additional testing to diagnose a condition during your annual checkup, you will be charged the cost of the additional testing.

All preventive services, including mammograms and routine colonoscopies, are free to members on the Consumer Choice Plan. Consumer Choice Plan members will be able to use the Employee Health Centers at a discounted rate. Mental health services are treated like medical services in the billing process in the Consumer Choice Plan.
