Attention City of Chicago Retirees... From a fellow retiree....

Dear TNUSA, I'm a CPD retiree on Medicare. I along with others was very upset that we were losing our health care. I just signed up for a Medicare supplement plan, if anybody is interested Aetna for health and Humana for part D prescription plan, and I'm saving $4000.00 vs the FOP plan and $ 4500.00 vs the BCBS plan the city offered us. 

The city has been screwing us with prices for years and again with the new plan. Again, I'm Medicare eligible, so the under 65 crowd is unable to access these plans. No deductible on health, no deductible on tier 1 and 2 prescriptions. 

My wife, age 68 is going to pay $99 a month for health and $17 a month for prescriptions. I'm 69 and I'm going to pay $116 a month for health and $17 a month for prescriptions. I'm not an agent or rep of either company but did a lot of research and asked questions and spent time on the Internet.  

If anybody checks out the Aetna plan they have to ask for the Aetna Health and Life Insurance plan which is a branch of Aetna Insurance. It has different rates than Aetna Insurance. Humana has a WalMart RX plan that is $17 a month with $1 or $3 co-pays on Tier 1 and 2 drugs. TNUSA is read by a lots of retirees and your site is a good place to get the info out. Thanks, retired from Unit 650.

I just received my packet from Blue Cross/Blue Shield after the city dropped us. This is for the Medicare Supplemental and it sux. Even with the tax deduction I am better off getting a policy from any one of many companies in my state ( Arizona), I will wait and see what Aetna offers us.

Retired city workers should look into United Health Care,AARP.You only pay $29.00 a month.In 2017 it will be only $26.00 a month.I have an excellent doctor on Michigan Ave.I was spending a fortune on Blue Cross,Blue Shield before I changed insurance.

I went to a CPD retiree luncheon the other day and one of the speakers was Clint Krislov the lawyer who is fighting to keep our retiree medical benefits. He is hopeful of wining this case before the Illinois Supreme Court. We will know the results soon so to bail out BCBS supplement is premature.

Other speakers were Dean Angelo, President of FOP 7 and two from Aetna insurance. They were pushing the Aetna MAPD, Medicare Advantage Plan with Drug program. This is NOT a Medicare supplement, it is a Medicare REPLCEMENT. You leave your Medicare Card at home and present your Aetna card. Aetna then pays them directly and collects from Medicare and the city.

Like an H.M.O., "The Aetna plan incudes an Extended Service Area (ESA), also known as a Passive PPO that will allow you to use doctors and hospitals that are in or out of the Aetna Medicare network. You will have the flexibility to visit doctors and hospitals of your choice, as long as they are licensed and eligible to receive payment from Original Medicare and can bill Aetna." So many of the best doctors and hospitals are not part of Aetna’s plan.

I spend my winters and I was going to have some major surgery done at a prominent hospital there. My records, X-ray, MRIs and tests are there. But this hospital does not take ANY Medicare Advantage Plans.

I saw my doctor here and the first words he said were, "Welcome to Obamacare." He didn't know anything about this and said come back and talk to his office manager. The same with any specialist, talk to the office manage as the doctor may not know anything about this plan.

The more I look into this the more it sounds like a second rate HMO being sold on those Obamacare exchanges. To put that package together to sell to 12,000+ CPD retirees somebody has to be getting paid off. I only hope to God Clint Krislov wins our case in court.

Do you have a contact number. I called Aetna & they don't seem to know about this insurance. Also Humana is going to send me info, their computer was down. They must be using Obama's computer.
Thanks
