Under the terms of DTO Agreement, the right to change healthcare plans and coverages resides solely with the Carrier. As a result, we have no contractual basis to dispute a change in plan administrators, and the DTO recently did just that when they changed to Cigna as their healthcare provider. While we may not have a contractual dispute where their healthcare plan choices are concerned, we believe we have a legal one as a result of their plan’s failure to provide coverage for certain family planning care and fertility treatment.
Under the Colorado Building Families Act, plans are required to cover the diagnosis and various treatments associated with infertility. We were recently informed the DTO plans do not include such coverage and have reached out to DTO to formally insist they bring themselves into compliance with the statute or cite their basis for a legal exemption. We firmly believe they are not exempt from the Law. They have young employees eager to start families who should have access to the care necessary to have the family they deserve. Such care is quite expensive, and we call on DTO to do the right thing by its employees.
