NYC MEA has compiled the latest materials available regarding Aetna Medicare Advantage and upcoming info sessions for your reference – for informational purposes only.

The MEA continues objection to the City of New York and the Municipal Labor Committee’s decision to involuntarily transfer retirees and their dependents from Traditional Medicare and GHI Senior Care health insurance plans to Aetna Insurance Company’s for-profit and inferior Medicare Advantage Plan.

Health care is one of the most sacred and indispensable necessities required to sustain our lives. Therefore, the quality of health care insurance and the performance of the insurer are of the utmost importance.
