Medicare Advantage

 

We want to provide you with an update regarding the offering for City of New York retirees – the NYC Medicare Advantage Plus plan, an alliance between Empire BlueCross BlueShield and EmblemHealth.

 

The NYC Medicare Advantage Plus plan is not being implemented on April 1, 2022. All retirees will remain in their current plans until further notice.

 

What does this mean?

City of New York retirees will remain in their current plan until further notice and will not transition to the NYC Medicare Advantage Plus plan on April 1, 2022. At this time, City of New York retirees do not need to opt out of the NYC Medicare Advantage Plus plan in order to remain in senior care or their current plan.

 

Where should I submit claims?

Please continue to follow your current processes for claims submission for the City of New York retirees under your care. Those processes will not change on April 1, 2022, as City of New York retirees will remain in their current plan.

 

When will City of New York retirees transition to the NYC Medicare Advantage Plus plan?

A new effective date has not yet been determined. Detailed information will be made available regarding the new effective date once it has been established.

 

Thank you for your continued care for City of New York retirees.
