Editorial

Sept.10, 2022

Clear the path: City Council should heed the city and the unions on the Medicare Advantage plan.

We welcome the news that the Adams administration and the city’s municipal unions have reached a deal to jointly ask the City Council to change a law that derailed the planned transition towards a Medicare Advantage plan for city retirees. Now, let’s get to saving the city budget hundreds of millions of dollars.

We appreciate that, for those who’ve worked for years or often decades with the expectation of retirement with certain guarantees, the prospect of change — any change — can seem daunting. And it’s certainly true that the city initially did a poor job of communicating what this shift from the standard Medicare program to this privately managed plan would and wouldn’t do, leaving the door open for confusion and misinterpretation.

Yet many of the concerns expressed by the small group of opponents who sued the city over the change are speculative or anecdotal. The fact that a health provider might not be aware of the new program does not in itself mean that they won’t accept it once the city actually rolls it out, particularly if it’s been structured, as the city promises, so that all doctors who currently accept Medicare will accept the new plan. And while prior authorization is a hurdle to get over, it is not the end of the world.

If retirees are concerned that the shift will negatively impact their care, they should be aware that the new initiative is expected to save the city $600 million a year, set to be reinvested into a fund that supplements care for retirees. In other words, killing the program has significant risks for the care they claim to want to protect.

Litigation has already massively delayed the rollout, caused the insurance companies that were going to manage it to pull out, and resulted in an order that the city couldn’t charge retirees for opting out, undermining much of the cost-cutting rationale for the switch. With a legislative change, the Council can unstick the gears. It must do so as soon as possible.

 

Renewal for Retirees
As of September 1, 2022, all licensees, including retired members of law enforcement, must have sixteen (16) hours of training and two (2) hours of shooting practice. The State of New York plans eventually to check back three (3) years of the applicant’s social media accounts, but, as of this writing, personnel is not yet in place at the Licensing Division to conduct social media checks.  H.R. 218 certification will be accepted only if it was acquired prior to September 1, 2022. The caveat is that the Licensing Division will assume the retired member of the service had H.R. 218 certification for consecutive years and didn’t just newly acquire it. We hope more information will be forthcoming, but as of this writing, this is what is known at this time.
