The city's past practice of reimbursing for Medicare Part B to Albany Police Department retirees and their spouses over 65 years old was reaffirmed by a state Supreme Court Appellate Division decision.
Art Scheuermann, an attorney who represented Albany police officers, civilians and communications units with the local union Council 82, said in late 2009, Albany stopped reimbursing for Medicare Part B — which covers nonhospital health services.
The courts determined Albany violated civil service law when it stopped the reimbursement without negotiating the terms in a contract, which has been a practice since 1983, Scheuermann said.
With the rising costs of Medicare, municipalities have tried to find ways to cut costs — one of them being eliminating or capping the reimbursement of Medicare Part B.
Stefanik, R-Willsboro, took a break from publicized constituent meetings during the tumult surrounding Republicans' attempt to overhaul the Affordable Health Care Act.
Many town hall-style meetings across the country were filled with shouts from progressive protesters questioning their representatives not just about health care, but about their stances on President Trump's immigration and environmental policies.
Stefanik hosted about 80 people last week at the Lyons Falls Library, where much of the conversation focused on challenges facing farmers such as dropping milk prices and tightening labor standards, according to coverage of the meeting in the Watertown Daily Times.
Around the same time as a February protest outside Stefanik's Glens Falls office, the congresswoman said on her Facebook page that it was "unfortunate and counterproductive that a small number of activists believe the best way to address the very serious issues facing our country is to hijack and ambush community events for the sole purpose of political theater."

APRIL 21, 2017 — In recent days came a welcome sign that new Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin won’t tolerate business as usual at his notoriously dysfunctional agency.
Officials unveiled a new website to show how quality of care at veteran’s health facilities compares with nearby private hospitals and with national averages.
As President Trump nears his first 100 days in office next week, I called the professor who predicted Trump’s win and has accurately forecast the outcome of every U. S. election since 1984 to ask him whether he still believes in his other famous forecast — that Trump will be impeached.
Allan Lichtman, a distinguished professor of history at American University, had forecast that Trump would be impeached since months before last year’s elections, and has now published a book titled “The Case for Impeachment.”
I was curious whether Trump’s latest policy reversals from some of his most outlandish populist stands will diminish the chance of an impeachment.
