    Open enrollment for Verizon Medical Retirees begins October 5 and ends October 14, 2021. If the retiree does not want to change their medical coverage there is no need to do anything, coverage will remain the same.

    Per the agreement with CWA and Verizon in 2012, there is a cap on Verizon's contribution to covered medical. Since the costs did not break that cap this year the costs for Pre-Medicare retirees who retired before 2013 will be reduced to $0. The costs for Pre-Medicare retirees retired after 2013 will remain the same.

    There is no change for Medicare retirees.

    The costs of prescription drugs from Expresscripts will increase between 41 cents and $2.00 depending on the drug and if mail order.

    Next Membership Meeting will report on CWA Convention, zoomed online, Wednesday, October 27, 1 PM
