Alight (formerly Compass) Healthcare Navigation is a no cost advocate for health services. In other words, they are a personal concierge that you can call on anytime you need them at 800-513-1667. Additionally, here is a video summary of what Alight is and what they offer.
Alight is here to be your health care partner. Employees and their dependents (enrollment with the City’s health plans is required) should contact Alight anytime they want or need help with things such as understanding healthcare billing or finding quality in-network providers.
Sometimes it can be impossible to make sense of medical treatment options and costs. One provider might charge $1,500 for an MRI, while another charges $500. That’s why we offer Alight.
With so many challenges and inconsistencies existing throughout the health care system, you can rely on your Health Pro at Alight to make you an empowered health care consumer who takes control of health care options and costs. Your Health Pro is just a phone call away and can help you and your dependents with:
