Aetna plan on hold pending court review

The Aetna Medicare Advantage PPO plan, originally slated to go into effect on Sept. 1, 2023, is on hold indefinitely due to ongoing litigation. That means, for now, city retiree health care plans and benefits remain the same. We will keep members updated as things progress. See the MLC statement on the court's decision
