As we reported just before Spring Break, General Prescription Program Inc. (GPP) terminated their contract with the Supplemental Fringe Benefits Fund to provide prescription to our members. As a result of GPP’s action, BeneCard, Inc. will be installed in its place effective April 1, 2016 pending legal and PERC decisions. We will continuing with our pending legal and grievance actions against the Newark Public Schools for their unilateral and bad faith selection of BeneCard, Inc. and will keep you posted.
Meanwhile, it is vital that we monitor the implementation of BeneCard. If you have any issues with your BeneCard prescription plan, please fill out the below survey or visit our website, immediately. It is important that we have this information for our continuing legal actions.
