Thanks for Your Service

  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel has already ordered sharply higher health care contributions from 313 City Hall bureaucrats, including himself.

    He’s also cut a deal with organized labor to wring $20 million in savings out of their health care costs, using tele-medicine, expert second opinions before surgery, diabetes management and higher co-payments.

    On Friday, the mayor lowered the boom on retirees — by completing a three-year phaseout of the city’s 55 percent subsidy for retiree health care and assuming that a lawsuit that seeks to reinstate the subsidy of $108.7 million a year falls flat.

    “These participants will see an additional reduction in the city subsidy by approximately 25 percent commensurate to the subsidy reductions in 2014 and 2015. The reduction in the subsidy marks the third year of a phaseout for those who retired after August 23, 1989. The reduction will save the city approximately $30 million in 2016,” the mayor’s office said in a statement.
Next motion date for the retiree lawsuit is 26 October.

We should just tell Rahm we'll work for free, no insurance at all, be on call 24/7, and thank Rahm for the privledge of working during his Term(s)
Insurance cuts at a time in life when U need it most. That's bullshit if I ever heard it. A person who doesn't do this kind of work shouldn't be able to make such important decisions without somewhere to harvest empathy for those that are 1st Responders.
In old age when those injuries start really fucking w/Ya Ur not going to be in a position to argue w/zeal.

..."Emanuel is rolling the dice, just as he did by authorizing a school budget that assumes $480 million in pension help from Springfield that may never come."

As the city issues new bonds to cover existing debt payments, we watch the snake eat it's own tail.

I guess the plan is to borrow from regular social security retirement fund to bail the SSDI out. Which of course drives that out of money even sooner.

Every retiree out there should immediately have every single medical test and/or procedure done before the end of the year. Any and every medical issue you have, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant now, make an appointment with a specialist. Do not put it off. The very last months of the year are difficult to get appointments because everyone is trying to beat the next years deductibles, which they have already met this year. If you can get multiple months of prescriptions, do it now. Got a hand nail? Have it viewd by a doctor. Don't have eyeglass insurance. See and opthomologist for the "pain" in your eye and get a vision test done on the city and take your prescription to Sears or wherever. Protect yourself as well as you can now but because the little prick won't in the future. Bleed him for his unconsionable actions and betrayal.

BCBS only administrates the City Plan. rahmasshole pays for the actual costs incurred. Put your tax dollars to work for you if still in the city, and if you have moved, still make him pay.

Sorry for my 3:00 am rant spelling and grammer errors. Typing too fast.

That little bastard elects to make this announcement on the same day that people across the country are paying respects to the brave men/women heroes of the NY MOS [members of service] who walked into the 911 inferno of Hell and made the ultimate sacrifice, and those who survived, till this day, still suffer the consequences of their actions.

Rahms has been saying that a long time! Look at benefits being cut, no hiring, crying about funding the lawfully required pension funds! Ice whatever is a pos but you can bet not just the black lies matter crew, but the white wannabe thug suburban kids sang along! Wait till Trump removes all the illegally here invaders, with millions gone can Trump shift the trillion over to first responders health care plans? Bet it will be easier to get into hospitals without being stuck by waiting for free care for illegals clogging emergency rooms everywhere! As a matter of fact I have written to Trump in New York and his office responds he says that the Trump organization is pro-military and pro-police and Fire! That is what we need Trump could be "change we could believe in!"

Why is that? Because the WELFARE CLASS under the rule of the plantation overseers always votes because that keep their government handouts coming. It keeps them poor and buying dope on street corners and money is passed up to the politicians.

Cops on the other hand DO NOT VOTE. Why is it that no FOP President ever led the charge saying the every cop will vote, every cop's family member and every cop's friend and neighbor will vote.

But every FOP President has had a cushy six-figure job handed to him when he leaves the FOP. Even if the job has to be created for him.

These fools think telemedicine will reduce costs, just like reviews of cat scans? Let me tell you something. If you have a headache or stomach pain, its easier to get a cat scan by going to the ER than your primary doctor. Your primary has to beg to some unnamed review doctor and maybe you will get a cat scan in one to two weeks,... or not. Go to the ER and you get the scan the same day. So where is the savings?

Consider that if you got a fecal test kit from your doctor, and did as instructed but added a bit of blood to the sample via a needle pricked finger, the test would become a medical necessity and would probably be covered. Not a suggestion;just mind rambling here.

Yes. However, speaking from experience here, any and all wellness & screening tests are NOT covered by my Blue Cross/Blue Shield plan (non-medicare)
Pray that you don't have a cancerous growth brewing, because you won't know
about it soon enough.

MAKE SURE your doctor's office codes your visit correctly, INSIST that your visit is medically necessary and not a wellness visit, feel-good checkup, etc.

Otherwise, the insurance company will NOT pay the doctor, or for any subsequent test bills. Doctor's office/laboratory billing will come after you, and you will be stuck.

The 55 and out retiree plan provides you and your family with free health insurance until you are 65 years of age; and the health insurance policy that you get is the exact same policy as if you were an "active" employee. If you retire before 55, you will pay a monthly premium for a policy that is for "retired" employees, which is not as good as the policy for "active" employees.

Definitely jump on the 55 and out plan now before it ends. You will get the exact same policy that you had while you were working, and there have been no problems whatsoever.

If you retire before you turn 55, the monthly cost beginning 2016 is $890 for yourself; and if you have a spouse the monthly cost is over $1800. Then in 2017, no more city funded health insurance for retirees; every retiree goes to obamacare. Unless you are one of those who retired with the 55 and out plan.

So active and retired cpd need to go to court on October 26 and show unity and fight for the health insurance we earned.

With the deadline for next years 55 and out insurance near, I heard that only 50 of the 100 required have signed up. I never understood the requirement of 100 needed for it to work unless it was just the city making everyone jump through hoops just to make it harder to retire with a benifit negotiated in good faith. What was the real reason for that requirement? Did the city want more people to go or was it one last chance for them to fuck with you?

To anonymous asking about the cost after the 55 and out insurance ends:
I just turned 65, spouse is 62....
Went from ZERO to :
$105 for Meducare for me
$930 for spouse's BC/BS PPO plan, and my supplement (about $730 for spouse, supp for me about $200)
Plus $36 monthly for dental for me..which comes to $1071.
These are the total amounts deducted from my NET amount, which is about 22% percent of my take home pay.

Guess he doesn't care if I can still pay my mortgage (10 more years), my gas, electric and water bills, my RE taxes,
food, car payment, etc etc.

With the 9 1/2's plan to NOT pay the city's portion, bill will rise about 25% each year beginning in January.
What a rotten phuck he is.

And since the Gov already takes 60% of my S/S, thank you very much, Mr Thieving Rostenkowski, Felon,
am not sure how much more they can take and still be able to make do.

To ALL officers out there! retired now and active, since one day you, too, will be retired: send the lawyer some money. Rahhmer needs to be stopped. To lose HALF your income! then be forced to take Go DIE Obamacare, is not a pretty option.

There are a lot of people who think that elected politicians are in the same boat as U.S. Well, they are not they excluded themselves from the Winfall Elmination Provision.
The Chicago Tribune reported that our own US Senator tricky Dick Durbin and his wife are currently collecting over 52,000 a year in Social Security along with his senate pay and her Lobbyist pay of 130,000 a year. He will also collect a full senate pension when he retires with his 100% Social Security that they both collect.
When asked why the politicians get full social security the answer was "because we are elected and not employees" that was said with a smirk on the goofs face. Well if they are not officially employees then why are they going to get a pension when they retire. You have to be an employee to get a pension!
How about Jr is he still collecting some social security and or pension for his bullshit disability even though he is a convicted felon?
"and you know, we almost lost Jr"
