Important Information for NYSHIP Enrollees

The NYSUT Regional Office has asked us to inform our membership that the contract between Blue Cross Hospital, which provides the hospitalization benefit portion of NYSHIP, and NYU Langone, is set to expire on September 30, 2019. If no agreement is reached by August 31, 2019 a letter will be sent from NYSHIP to its participants informing them that one month remains in the contract with NYU-Langone and that there is a possibility of a disruption.  We will update you as we learn of developments.

If anyone wants additional information they can call Peter L. Verdon, Regional Staff Director at NYSUT Suffolk Regional Office at 631-273-8822.
