John informed the membership of some changes to BSO's health insurance which may benefit many retirees, and answered
questions from the membership. (go to Retirees News Page to see More)
One of the positive changes is that retirees currently receiving the stipend will have a one time special enrollment should they wish
to enroll in the Aetna plans.
Liz Martorella was available to answer questions regarding choices.

In an effort to expand the membership of BSORA, the Board invited Cathy Sapp, a manager of healthiestyou, an app program designed to better control your health-care and its costs.  She gave a video presentation explaining the benefits of the program.

Due to many requests from members for the membership list, a motion was made by Deenie Ewing, seconded by Roger Lekutis, and approved by a majority in attendance to furnish members with the list.

A motion was made by Tony Romano and seconded by Dave Boros to close the meeting.  The motion was unanimously approved.
