If you enrolled in the Catastrophe Major Medical Plan sponsored by the NYSUT Member Benefits Trust during the limited-time open-enrollment period in spring 2017, your first bill from the plan’s administrator, Mercer Consumer, will be arriving in the mail in mid-November.
It is imperative that you pay your bill by the Dec. 31, 2017 deadline. If you do not pay your bill by this date, your coverage will not go into effect and you will not be able to enroll again until the plan offers another open-enrollment period in the future.
If you are eligible for payroll or pension deduction of your CMM Plan premium, your bill will provide this option. Deduction-authorization cards submitted with enrollment forms were unable to be processed; therefore, any request for payroll or pension deduction will require the submission of another authorization form.
