I'm on Medi-Care. They do pay for my part B prescription though. These things were contractual I believe. Maybe your's were not. I don't know as I took an early retirement in 1983. PT&T always treated us fairly. They treated their people well as they could even during the depression and without a union. Actually, the relative pay vis-a-vis comparative companies went down after the union got a toehold in 1947. Beirne was a crook that took union dues and used them to further his own personal views and politics rather than promote the welfare of his members.
