Judge Orders NYC to Delay Medicare Advantage Plan Until April 1

Thursday, Dec. 15, 2021 -- A decision was issued late yesterday (Dec. 14, 2021) by the judge that allows the Medicare Advantage Plan to go forward effective April 1, 2022. If you take no action, you will be placed into the Medicare Advantage Plus Program. If you wish to stay in your current plan, you have until March 31, 2022, to opt out. If you decide to go into the Medicare Advantage Plus Program and then change your mind, you will have the option of opting out until June 30, 2022. 

As part of his decision, Judge Frank ordered that retirees not be responsible for possible multiple deductibles that occur by being in one plan for the first part of the year and then in the Medicare Advantage plan for the balance.

You should receive a new letter before January 7, 2022, from the New York City Office of Labor Relations containing a list of the corrections and additions made to the previously sent Enrollment Guide. Read More >>
