Medicare Part B reimbursements

According to the Health Benefits Program, Medicare Part B reimbursements for 2013 will be sent to you starting in the middle of August through September. We will have a follow-up article in the September issue of the New York Teacher. Refunds automatically will be sent to retirees covered by Medicare Part B who are enrolled in the city Health Benefits Program and who received a refund for 2012 or retired in 2013 and were Medicare eligible, or became covered by Medicare Part B in 2013 and had notified the Health Benefits Program. Retirees covered by Medicare Part B in 2013 paid a base Medicare premium of $104.90 per month. If you have moved in the last year or if you are the spouse of a retiree who died in 2013, please contact: Health Benefits Program, 40 Rector Street, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10006. Attention: Medicare Reimbursement Unit. Be sure to include the retiree’s Social Security number on all correspondence.
