In light of the recent court ruling regarding the city’s Medicare Advantage plan the below bill needs a big push. I am hoping that we can make this bill happen while this ruling is still in effect.Please encourage all members to call their current or past NYS Senator and Assemblyman and implore them to co-sponsor this bill. Also encourage them to involve their family and friends.Let your voices be heard. The medicare advantage plan should be a wakeup call to us all. Protect your benefits.

Fraternally,
John Briganti,
President
