RESOLUTION NO. (R)16-04, APPROVING AN INTERGOVERNMENTAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE TOWN OF ORO VALLEY AND THE GOLDER RANCH FIRE DISTRICT (GRFD) FOR THE USE OF THE EMPLOYEE HEALTH CLINIC BY GRFD EMPLOYEES AND DEPENDENTS PARTICIPATING IN A GRFD HEALTHCARE PLAN
Staff recommends that the Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) between the Town of Oro Valley and the Golder Ranch Fire District for the use of the Employee Health Clinic by the Golder Ranch Fire District be approved as written.
The Town of Oro Valley Employee Health Clinic is made available free of charge to Town employees and their dependents participating in a Town-sponsored healthcare plan. Under the current contract with Health Care Solutions, the facility offers the services of a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) two days per week and a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) one day per week.
The Golder Ranch Fire District (GRFD) has expressed interest in partnering with the Town of Oro Valley in expanding Health Clinic availability to accommodate their eligible employees and dependents. There is capacity to add the GRFD employees and dependents by adding an additional FNP day to the week. The cost of the additional FNP day will be fully borne by GRFD via the IGA, resulting in no additional cost to the Town. The annual administrative fee will be shared, thereby relieving the Town of the full burden.
The IGA will benefit Town employees due to the addition of another FNP day, and will also benefit our partners at GRFD by providing a cost effective healthcare alternative for their eligible employees and dependents.
The IGA will go before the GRFD Board of Directors for consideration on February 10, 2016.
BACKGROUND OR DETAILED INFORMATION:
Under the current contract with Health Care Solutions (HCS), the Town of Oro Valley pays $10,182 dollars per month to provide healthcare services via the Employee Health Clinic. This monthly fee includes two FNP days, one LPN day, supplies and administrative fees.
GRFD has less than half of the potential volume of the Town's employees with their 170 employees and 377 dependents. By adding a FNP day to support GRFD employees and dependents, the Town increases the capacity of the clinic by 50% at no additional cost. Furthermore, the cost of supplies will be shared with GRFD rather than the Town having to shoulder the full burden in providing medical expendables.
There is no additional cost to the Town of Oro Valley. There will be some savings to the Town at approximately $9,000 annually as the administrative costs of the Health Clinic will be shared with GRFD.
I MOVE to (approve/deny) Resolution No. (R)16-04, approving the IGA between the Town of Oro Valley and Golder Ranch Fire District for the use of the Health Clinic by Golder Ranch Fire District employees and dependents.
