Welcome to the Syracuse Retired Firefighters. Our web site is designed to provide you with answers to commonly asked benefit questions, the latest information on events in Albany that could effect you as a retiree, and information about local events and happenings.
Earlier this year, all Firefighter Retirees and Widows enrolled in Medicare Part A and Part B received notification from the City of Syracuse outlining the change in their Health benefit coverage from Pomco to Humana, plus a booklet from Humana with brief details of their new coverage.
The City of Syracuse contracted with Humana to bring Medicare Advantage Plan coverage (Medicare Part C) as a replacement to traditional Medicare to retired city employees starting on January 1, 2015. The Drug policy will remain the same with ProAct of Gouvenour, NY remaining the 90 day mail order pharmacy with 30 day prescriptions to be filled by local pharmacies.
Please note that we are providing access to a web site link as requested by Bill Newland of the Binghamton retirees. As noted, it is dedicated to the mission of eradicating cancer: http://www.letsfirecancer.org.
