Important info for Medicare-eligible retirees
Over the course of August and September, MTEA staff and leaders, along with leaders from the other MPS unions, met with the district regarding modifications to the active and retiree health care plans.
As a result of our talks, all Medicare-eligible retirees will move to a plan called Medicare Advantage as of January 1, 2015. This plan is a win for retirees because:
There is no deductible
Policyholders will get larger reimbursements in Medicare Part B
Paperwork is simplified and streamlined
Nominate a colleague for the Sid Hatch Outstanding School Leader Award
Each month the MTEA recognizes one Building Representative and one EA Chair for being an outstanding school leader. Nominate a colleague here.
