~RECENT UPMA NEWS~
The cumulative COLA total for 2018 is +2.0%. There is 0 months left before the final 2018 tabulation.
IT'S OFFICIAL THE 2018 COST OF LIVING IS 2.0%
The Postal Reform Bill requires that all retirees must sign up for Medicare B. This will increase premiums for those who previous chose not to enroll in B. This will enable the Postal Service to offer us a much cheaper supplemental (for them) health plan. The plan may have far less benefits to it than what we now have. It is rumored that Medicare Part B may be eliminated, what happens to the retirees health insurance coverage (we were forced into) then? HR 756 may have Postal Reform merits, but has nothing in it that will benefit retirees health benefits.
The premium rates for our hospitalization plans for 2018 can be found here: https://www.opm.gov/healthcare-insurance/healthcare/plan-information/premiums/
