While the Indy News Guild has no influence over healthcare policies/packages, the disturbing news that Gannett has been slow to process our plans — which may give the appearance that you don’t have insurance even though you signed up for a plan and are paying for that plan through your paycheck — is cause for concern. Our advice is 1) call the phone number on your insurance card and speak to their reps to double-check on your status BEFORE you see a doctor or attempt a pharmacy visit or any other medical issue. If you sense problems, you can call Abby in the Star HR department who can navigate the red tape that you may encounter. Her number is 317-444-8162.
Thoughts go out to our colleague Jay Harvey for a speedy recovery!
