New and noteworthy
Whatever your age or the type of medical insurance you have, you can be left with extraordinary out-of-pocket medical expenses if you have a serious medical issue or require convalescent, custodial or home health care. The UFT’s state affiliate, the New York State United Teachers (NYSUT), sponsors a supplemental plan that can help cover catastrophic health care costs for members and their eligible family members.
