Southwest Florida Retired Workers Council Meeting Scheduled


It was nice to see everyone that attended January’s monthly meeting!   It turned out to be a very informative meeting between the membership, Trust and Providers.  It is with hope that many of you were able to get answers to your questions regarding your healthcare.

REMINDER:  Our next meeting will be Tuesday, February 14, 2023, at 11:00 am at our new location, the Holiday Inn, 2431 Cleveland Avenue (41), Fort Myers, FL 33901.  It is across the street from Lee Memorial Hospital.

As an additional reminder, all the Providers (Blue Cross, United Health Care, Davis Vision, OptumRX, TruHearing) will be at the meeting to answer any questions you may have regarding medical benefits.  Bring your bill(s) so they can assist you and help you get answers to your questions.
If you haven’t received your ballot for the run-off, please call to get one!  The phone number to call is 855-433-8683.  All ballots are due by February 17, 2023.  It's important to have your vote count!

As a final note – there will be a surprise for all the ladies in attendance as February 14th is Valentine’s Day!
