Dependent Eligibility Verification (DEV) Project

What is it?

The Metro Nashville Employee Benefit Board, in conjunction with Metro Nashville Human Resources and with the assistance of Budco Health Service Solutions (Budco) is conducting a Dependent Eligibility Verification (DEV) project. This project is an important component of an overall strategy aimed at controlling the rising cost of health care.

The purpose of the project is to confirm that the eligibility guidelines of Metro's benefit plans are being followed so that claims are not paid for ineligible dependents. Metro understands that mistakes and misunderstandings can happen. For example, an employee may forget to report a change such as a divorce, which may result in costly claim over-payments.

What do you need to do?

Beginning in May packets will be mailed to Metro employees and retirees requesting certain information to verify the eligibility of dependents (spouses and/or children) who are covered by one of Metro's medical plans. Please follow the directions within the packet and submit any and all forms and documents requested.

For more details please call Metro Benefits at (615) 862-6700.
