Reported from the 2018 state convention
Drew Martin, Eastern Area UPMA Vice-President was with us for the full convention. His primary presentation was the comparison of Postal bills HR 756 and S
Of particular interest to retirees in both these bills is the Medicare Integration segment.
Only Medicare-eligible retirees (65 and older) will be integrated, 80% of whom already participate in Medicare.
Retirees and all postal employees would get a 9% discount on FEHBP and there would be a Medicare Part B premium reimbursement.
Retirees, this would mean virtually NO out-of-pocket costs. A plus for us! Keep watch as this comes up in November.
Dates to remember: Legislative Summit. January 28 - 29, 2019. Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel.
