New information and updates to our June 1, 2023 blog story New York City Retirees are Running Out of Time to Choose a Medicare Plan.
As of July 7th, 2023, there is no Opt-Out or Waiver deadline in effect due to a preliminary injunction issued by the court.
- All current health plans remain in effect. No retiree will be moved into the new Medicare Advantage PPO Plan.
- No opt-out requests made through Aetna via their call center or website will be processed at this time.
- No waiver of City health benefits, enrollment into the Aetna Medicare Advantage PPO Plan or adding the prescription drug rider that has been submitted on the Retiree Special Enrollment/Waiver Form will be processed at this time.
