The police union is suing the city for making changes to cops’ health insurance plans without consulting them, according to court papers.
The new PBA suit says the changes will drive copays as high as $150 for an emergency room visit when it used to be just $50.
The union accuses the city of bypassing the mandated, one-on-one collective bargaining system and making the changes through a citywide group that represents municipal unions.
The new plan for municipal workers will amount to $3.4 billion in savings for the city, the suit says.
It is scheduled to go into effect on July 1.
A spokesman for the city Law Department said, “We will review the complaint.”
