Broome County Purchasing Alliance

Medicare Advantage Prescription Drugs

Broome County is developing a Purchasing Alliance Request for Proposal that can save more than 50% on your Retiree Medicare Advantage Program. Ultimately this plan would cut costs and keep millions of dollars in Broome County.

The Objective: To pool the purchasing power of New York State governmental entities (Counties, municipalities, political subdivisions) for the purchase of Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug programs. Each entity will continue to maintain the same coverage as they currently provide and receive premiums based on the purchasing leverage of the entire alliance.

Participation requirements

Each entity must pass a resolution to participate in the BCPA RFP. This resolution does not bind you to participating in the program.

Each entity must submit a copy of the passed resolution, census of covered Medicare retiree population, and current plan description through the BCPA portal by 5/26/21.

A post resolution must be passed to either participate in the program or opt out.

This initiative will put millions of dollars back into our communities and saves thousands of dollars for our valued retirees who contribute towards their coverage.
