Judge orders NYC to fund retired municipal workers’ supplemental health plans


Retired New York City employees scored a major victory on Tuesday, after a judge sided with advocates in a major decision affecting the health care of thousands of city dwellers. 

The NYC Organization of Public Service Retirees got the ruling in the state’s Appellate Court, which dealt a blow to a proposal that would transition city retirees onto a private Medicare Advantage Plan, rather than keep them on their current government-funded plans.
