2017 Retiree medical plan options
As previously noted, on October 19, 2017, the Board of Fire and Police Pension Commissioners (Board) voted to discontinue looking at new medical plan options for non-Medicare retired members. However, at that meeting, the Board voted to seek proposals for new Medicare Supplement Plans.
On November 16, 2017, at the request of the Ad Hoc Committee on Retiree Health Plans, the Board voted to rescind its action concerning seeking new Medical Supplement Plans. Instead, the Board will allow the Ad Hoc Committee to engage in further discussions with the employee organizations that currently offer retiree medical and dental plans to see what, if any, changes need to be made in the currently available options.
So, for the moment, no plans are in the works to change or eliminate the currently available retiree medical plan options.
