“WASHINGTON – Premiums will go up sharply next year under President Barack Obama’s health care law, and many consumers will be down to just one insurer, the administration confirmed Monday. That’s sure to stoke another “Obamacare” controversy days before a presidential election.
Retirees on Social Security are likely to bank a pay raise next year for the first time since 2015 — though many won’t even notice the cost-of-living increase in their benefits, which will amount to a cup of coffee or two for the average recipient.
As a proud member of the CVS Health family of companies, SilverScript (PDP) shares that commitment by offering affordable, high quality coverage to people with Medicare. Unlike other Medicare insurers, Part D prescription drug coverage is our only business and has been since the Part D program began. We have the experience, expertise and focus to deliver high quality, affordable coverage that millions1 of Americans from all walks of life count on everyday for peace of mind.

From Employee Benefit Advisor:
“The U.S. Department of Labor acted on President Obama’s Executive Order 13706 (EO) and released a final rule implementing the requirements for federal contractors and subcontractors to provide employees with paid sick leave. Specifically, contractors must provide one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours worked on or in connection with a covered contract, for at least 56 hours per year, and subject to certain limitations. The requirements will take effect for covered contracts entered into on or after January 1, 2017.
An employee may use the leave for his or her own physical or mental illness, injury, medical condition, treatment or diagnosis as well as that of any person with whom the employee has a significant personal bond that is or is like a family relationship, regardless of biological or legal relationship. This includes such relationships as grandparent and grandchild, brother- and sister-in-law, fiancé and fiancée, cousin, aunt, and uncle. It could also include others with whom the employee has a family-like relationship such as a foster child or foster parent, a friend of a family, or even an elderly neighbor in certain circumstances.”
