Update on NYC Medicare Advantage Plus Plan

July 18, 2022

We requested the City of New York provide us with a start date and details regarding the exact benefit plans the city would be offering their retirees by July 15, 2022. The City of New York did not provide us with the details we requested. This timeline was important because delaying any further would not give retirees enough time to fully understand their options, benefits, and coverage in advance of open enrollment prior to January 1, 2023. Given the level of uncertainty at this time, we informed the city that Empire BlueCross BlueShield is not able to participate in offering the NYC Medicare Advantage Plus Plan.
