Legislation To Protect Retirees Health Care Benefits!

The erosion and elimination of employer-sponsored health care coverage for retirees took a step forward on September 25, 2008 when NRLN President Bill Kadereit testified before an important U.S. House of Representatives Committee.

In the hearing on "Safeguarding Retiree Health Benefits," Bill told the Committee on Education and Labor that maintenance of health care benefits in effect on the day of retirement is a top NRLN priority. He also said that two other NRLN priorities are the inclusion of catastrophic coverage in Medicare and the creation of a Medicare buy-in option, at cost, for all under age 65 retirees.
