It appears some City of Toronto employees are putting in some overtime in the bedroom.
The latest report from the Auditor General on Employee Extended Health and Dental Benefits finds $1.9M was reimbursed to employees for erectile dysfunction medication.
As is stands, the City has no maximum coverage limit for this type of drug, but that will likely change.
The report found nearly $750,000 could be saved annually if there was a $500 annual benefits limit for this type of drug.
Nearly $3M was spent annually on prescription opioids, sedatives and stimulants.
Between 2011 and 2015, the City spent a total of more than a quarter of a billion dollars on drug benefits; $$60M was spent last year alone.
Beverly Romeo-Beehler’s report was meant to prevent and find the misuse of benefits by employees, retirees, their spouses and eligible dependents, while finding some cost savings.
