* Some retirees after 7/2000 are reimbursed for their Medicare Part B.  If you are eligible you should have received a form from the PA.  The company that handles this for the PA is a third party organization called WageWorks.  As the situation is different for each retiree we cannot make the forms available on our website.  Therefore you must contact Benefits at (212) 435-2870 and ask if you are eligible and if so to send the proper forms to you.  Starting May 1, 2020 WageWorks will be handling the reimbursements, Information will be sent to all those who are eligible.

PARA agreement on hearing aids and hearing related services - October 2018

As we age, some of us suffer various degrees of hearing loss. As many of you already know, hearing aids can be very expensive. Recently, we heard about a company that
can help reduce the cost somewhat (up to 70% in some cases).

The company is Hear in America (HIA), which has a nationwide network of providers who perform hearing tests and can fit you for hearing aids. We heard about this company from one of our members, who is also a member of RPEA (Retired Public Employees Association).

We contacted HIA to see if we could enter into an agreement with them to provide this service to our members and their  family members. They were eager to do so, and we are  happy to announce the agreement between HIA and PARA effective October 2018.   The service is available immediately to all those who want to take advantage.

All you (or your family member) have to do is call HIA at 1-800-286-6149, tell them you are a member  of PARA and they will connect you with a local provider.

Our agreement provides for free hearing exams, discounts on devices, warranties on equipment, free repair and batteries for a period after purchase and other benefits. HIA will provide the details. Of course, all transactions are solely between HIA’s local providers and its customers and PARA has no liability in connection with this new benefit.

Mental illness affects everyone. Nearly 60 million Americans experience a mental health condition every year. Regardless of race, age, religion or economic status, mental illness impacts the lives of at least one in four adults and one in 10 children across the United States. 

People living with mental illness need help and hope: they need a community that supports them, their families and their recovery.

* Note: Using the MetLife Claim form is not necessary for many Dentists.  I have never filled out a claim form yet I have been to three different Dentists and been paid.  Many dentists have computer access to MetLife and all you have to do is give them your name and SS # and they do what is referred to as Pre-Qualify you.  They then will tell you what MetLife will pay and what it will cost you out of pocket.  However, there are some dentists that will require a form and Tom Kearny a former Para Board member went through the process filling out the form recently.  He had to contact MetLife because it seems it is not as easy as one would think.  Anyway, he shared his experience with me so I put his advice on the bottom of the instruction sheet of the claim form, it is very helpful, don't fill out the form without reading Tom's advice......Webmaster
