Hope this finds everyone doing okay.  At our meeting Monday we will have two of our providers there.  Blue Cross and United Health Care.

If you have a problem with either of these or just need info they will be available to assist you.

Our retiree meetings have been well-attended since the threat of COVID has lessened.  We are thankful for that.

This will be our regular scheduled meeting the first since the conclusion of the International Executive Board Election.   At this point, President Ray Curry is trailing his opponent by 638 votes.  The only remaining votes left to be determined are the challenged ballots.  It is my understanding there are approximately 1100 hundred that will be reviewed this coming Thursday.  We should know the official outcome by the time we have our meeting.

We will be discussing the changes in our Prescription Drug mail-ordering procedure.  We need to identify any problems we are having. I have received several calls with different issues.

Hopefully, everyone has received their BCBS Medical Card with the RX at the bottom right.
