Please Share Why Your Healthcare is Critical To You

HSS voted last month to switch your excellent retiree healthcare from United Healthcare to an inferior plan on Blue Shield CA starting in January 2025. They are telling us nothing will change. But that’s not what we’re hearing. Tell us your story so we can share it (no names, if you prefer) with our elected officials. Don’t balance the city budget on retirees backs!
