The city policy relates to all phases of employment, including, but not limited to, recruitment, employment, promotion, transfer, rates of pay and other forms of compensation, selection for training, use of all facilities, and participation in all city-related activities.

Insurance Requirement

machine-readable files (MRFs) as follows:

This is the link the general public can use to access the MRFs:

This link leads to the machine-readable files that are made available in response to the federal Transparency in Coverage Rule and include negotiated service rates and out-of-network allowed amounts between health plans and health care providers. The machine-readable files are formatted to allow researchers, regulators and application developers to more easily access and analyze data.
