MARCH 2019 - THOSE STILL ON UMR(POMCO) INSURANCE

 

Received from Jeff Piedmonte

"Wendy Murphy (Personnel) sent out a notice that the city will be voting on changing our insurance carrier to Excellus BC/BS. Since the change to UMR many members have experienced numerous issues with the insurance. Emergency room visits are denied on a regular basis due to coding issues as well as many other issues at UMR. We hope the change back to BC/BS will be a benefit for everyone. This change will not take affect until July 1.

 

Lastly, within the previous six months the city paid for 792 visits to the emergency rom of which 262 were deemed to be a non-emergency. These visits cost the city on average $1,900 while a visit to urgent care costs the city $143. Well Now, formerly Five Star, has a zero co-pay for us at their urgent care facilities. Well Now even has a telemedicine line now that you can call after hours for service. If you can describe your ailment and it's something they can treat over the phone they will email in a prescription for you. This is a great benefit when you're traveling or during hours they are closed. You can look into this on the Well Now website. This location saves you money as well as the city. If the 262 people went to urgent care instead of the ER it would of saved the city $450,000. Every time we negotiate the city always requests more money from us for health insurance due to the rising costs. If we take care of the plan by properly using it the city has less of an argument for more money. If you can go to urgent care please do so. In the long run this will benefit all of us."
