New diabetes programs from GHI

The Municipal Labor Committee, along with the New York City Office of Labor Relations Committee, has created two new diabetes pilot programs to assist our members. These programs will not replace the care you receive from your doctor, but will provide additional support you may need to manage your diabetes and meet your health goals. The programs will begin on July 1, 2015. EmblemHealth will identify GHI Non-Medicare subscribers who will be eligible for the program. EmblemHealth will contact selected members including instructions on how to join this program. If selected, we urge you to participate!

New Optional Rider Rates Effective July 1, 2015

The optional rider rates for the health plans have been finalized and will be effective
July 1, 2015.  Due to the delay in the finalization of the rates which occurred after the
in-service payroll for the summer was completed, the city was not able to apply the new rates in the summer checks.  However, they were able to apply the rates to July pension checks. 

We are expecting a “catch-up” applied to the in-service payrolls following the summer as has happened in the past.  As soon as we have confirmation as to how this will be applied, we will share that information.

GHI-CBP Old Rate July 1, 2015
Individual (In-service) $6.88 $6.42
Family (In-service) $17.43 $16.26
Individual (Retiree) $126.88 $126.42
Family (Retiree) $232.43 $231.26
Medicare $107.17 $107.08
HIP Prime HMO    
Individual (Retiree) $142.58 $153.78
Family (Retiree) $349.31 $376.76
