Bulletin Board – October 28th, 2019

October 28, 2019 RUPA Members:  It has come to our attention that there may be some issues with the current UAL Benefits form that you need to check very carefully. The UAL Benefits form you have recently received may have a coding problem and or incorrect Medicare number(s).   Bottom line: if anyone has been "given" 1502, Medicare Indemnity option versus the 1501 Medicare Advantage they're supposed to be getting, they must call the UAL Benefits center to give them their correct Medicare number(s), or they will be dis-enrolled as of June 2020.   Contact ASAP the UAL Benefits Center (Your Benefits Resources) 800 651 1007 UAL is aware of the problem - take action and call and verify your information!

October 11, 2019 RUPA Members: Immediate Past President Bob Engelman took notes at the Aetna insurance presentation made at the RUPA Reunion in Dayton, Ohio last week. Lots of questions and answers remain!   This is NOT an endorsement or recommendation! RUPA does not have an insurance guru so your own research is required.   This eblast is very long, be patient. DO NOT CONTACT ME FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, I don't have the answers and don't use the company's insurance plan.   To start with, no one at RUPA has the expertise to assess a medical plan. That’s something so important that each member should do his or her own research. I’ll include below the notes I took at the presentation we got at Dayton,...
