Yes. In general, the plan cost is the total of your contributions to the retirement plan and that is reported in total employee contributions box.  

According to page 5 of Pub 721, under the heading, "your cost", "your monthly annuity payment contains an amount on which you have previously paid income tax. This amount represents part of your contributions to the retirement plan.

Please refer to page 5 of Pub 721 under the headings, "your cost" and "recovering your cost tax free" for additional clarification regarding your plan cost and how to recover that cost
