News Briefs: Anthem’s Contract to Cover NYC Retirees Hits New Roadblock

Just days before the planned start of Anthem, Inc.’s new contract to serve retired New York City workers and their dependents, the city’s comptroller declined to register the proposed contract and turned it back to Mayor Eric Adams (D) for a revised cost estimate. The move effectively freezes the city’s already delayed transition to a group Medicare Advantage contract, which would have nearly doubled the Anthem’s Employer Group Waiver Plan enrollment. “Due to the legal and budgetary uncertainties that remain while litigation over the City’s contract with Anthem Insurance Companies continues, the Comptroller’s office does not have sufficient information to register the proposed Medicare Advantage Plan contract at this time,” New York City Comptroller Brad Lander explained in a March 30 statement posted to the comptroller’s website. Subsequently, the city’s Office of Labor Relations posted that the transition to the NYC Medicare Advantage Plus Plan would not be implemented as of April 1 as planned and that all retirees “will remain in their current plans until further notice.”
