Update: Judge Temporarily Blocks NYC From Switching Retiree Medicare Plans

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.
