(from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 4-117.1)
Deduction for group plans.
If a municipality sponsors
a group hospital and medical plan which includes retired firefighters and
their spouses, upon written request of a retired firefighter, deductions
shall be made from the pension payments of the firefighter in the amounts
which the firefighter is required to contribute toward the group plan in
order to obtain such coverage.
Whenever continued group insurance coverage is elected in accordance
with the provisions of Section 367f of the Illinois Insurance Code, as now
or hereafter amended, the total monthly premium for such continued group
insurance coverage or such portion thereof as is not paid by the
municipality shall, upon request of the person electing such continued
group insurance coverage, be deducted from the monthly pension otherwise
payable to such person pursuant to this Article, and shall be remitted by
the pension fund making such deduction to the insurance company or other
entity providing the group insurance coverage.
