Dear Brothers and Sisters:


Local 71 hopes that you can attend this important informational meeting where we will share information on the following items that could offer substantial savings to you. 


  • Plans and premiums offered through the International Association of SMART - Below you will find the 2016 premium rates for the three plans that are offered through the International.  These premiums include a $31.00 subsidy from NPF for those that are eligible.

  • Direct pay Medicare Advantage Plans

  • EPIC Program - The thresholds for the EPIC Program have gone up and you may now be eligible for assistance with your Medicare Part D prescription co-pays.  For your convenience we’ve enclosed an application for you to complete.  If you need assistance completing the application, please let us know.

Please make every effort to attend.  Family members are welcome to join us!  If you cannot attend this meeting, but would like to make an appointment to discuss your options at a later date, please contact Ahren Vogl at the Union Hall to do so. 


NOTE:  This meeting is for those that are Medicare eligible only and does not apply to those that are under 65.  There will not be a regular retiree meeting this month.
