Mercy Health Leaving Anthem Medicare Advantage Par

Sunday,  October  1,  2023

*Mercy Health* will be leaving the Anthem Medicare Advantage (Part C) network on 10/1/2023. After this date, Anthem members may pay more for care received from Bon Secours Mercy Health facilities.

Anthem is sending letters to impacted members. If members are receiving ongoing treatments, they may be able to receive coverage for this provider a little while longer. Members should contact Customer Service to discuss their options.

This situation DOES NOT impact Medicare Supplement plans. Medicare Supplement members may continue to see any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare patients.

Anthem will continue to negotiate with Bon Secours Mercy Health and hope to reach an agreement that keeps them in our networks. We will let you and our members know if this happens. Please visit for the latest information.

This does impact Ohio Mercy systems as well.

IAFF and Public Sector Unions Remain Committed to

Wednesday,  November  1,  2023

From AFL-CIO President Burga,

Repealing the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) and Government Pension Offset (GPO) provisions – responsible for reducing Social Security benefits for certain members of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) – remains a top priority at the International, despite obstacles proponents face in Congress.

“This IAFF knows how important eliminating these unfair provisions is for our members and other hard-working public servants who dedicated their lives to the community,” said General President Edward Kelly. “They should not be penalized and denied the money they paid into Social Security. We will continue the fight to right this wrong.”

While most IAFF members do not pay into Social Security, some qualify for benefits through secondary occupations or spousal benefits. The WEP and GPO lead to reduced benefits for these members since they did not pay into Social Security through their primary jobs as fire fighters.

Resolution 27, successfully adopted at the 2022 IAFF Convention, aimed to stop these unfair benefit cuts. It called on the IAFF to collaborate with relevant stakeholders to champion federal legislation to eliminate Social Security offsets.

The IAFF has been working with a coalition of unions, including the American Federation of Teachers, the Fraternal Order of Police, and the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, to generate support for H.R. 82 and S. 597. As a result, the legislation has received more than 280 cosponsors.
