New information and updates about the new NYC Medicare Advantage Plus Plan.
Retirees do not have to take any action at this time. A group of City retirees filed a lawsuit challenging the City’s decision to implement the NYC Medicare Advantage Plus Plan. In that case, the Judge has extended the injunction, and adopted April 1 as the new implementation date, with March 31 as the opt-out deadline. The judge also required the City to send a letter to retirees and a new enrollment guide, and to report to the court about the progress in personally contacting providers about their participation.
