Memo To:   All Buffalo Teachers

From:         Philip Rumore, President, BTF

Date:          January 24, 2023 


Subject:    Problems with Highmark

As you may know, the problems that many had in receiving required coverage under Highmark BC/BS involved organizations in addition to the Buffalo Teachers Federation and other District employees.


We are seeking a New York State and Federal investigation of the causes, how those who were adversely impacted will be compensated and how it will be prevented in the future.


We will also be working with others to file a class action complaint against Highmark BC/BS.


Please provide us with information relating to the problems you encountered recently relating to being denied the coverage for which you were entitled from Highmark BC/BS. As always, names will not be released.


 Required Coverage Not Met:
John Doe   01/12/2023   Prescription Coverage   Overcharged $
