this time we have all received our open enrollment documents and have made our
decisions. Some have opted to drop BSO insurance either for private individual
plans or for Medicare Supplements. For those staying in the BSO plan we will
continue to work with BSO Benefits to provide information and to express the
needs of retirees.
that end we reached out to see what affect if any the Coventry/AETNA merger in
January 2014 will have. We have been advised that AETNA and our local Coventry
Reps. have had meetings regarding full integration of Coventry into the AETNA
platform. Benefits Mgr Beth Parker and Coventry Rep Roseanne Robertelli will
stay on top of the issue and keep us informed. We will pass along information
as it becomes available.
BSORA Executive Board
Our Association, granted IRS exemption under 501 (c) (3), was established as a not-for-profit organization. Under guidelines set to allow for this, our objectives are: 1. Promote the general welfare of our retirees. 2. Promote law enforcement, respect for authority and suppression of criminal activity. 3. To assist in the development and implementation of crime prevention programs. 4. To assist persons in need. 5. To provide educational scholarships. 6. To encourage tolerance of every kinds. 7. To cooperate with civic organizations and promote such civic, charitable and educational undertakings as this Association shall deem proper. All honorably retired and DROP members of the Broward Sheriff's Office (BSO), regardless of sworn or civilian status, are eligible to become members, and they are more than welcome to do so. There is no rank structure in being a retiree, and there are no structures within our organization. Being somewhat unique in having many of our members in different parts of the State and Country, the advent of electronic communication through the use of emails, etc., makes everyone only minutes away in one manner or another. Committees will be necessary to form and require Chairmanship. We will have many upcoming business/social meetings, to address the official needs of our members. We would like to see as many that want to get involved, do so. The BSORA can only be as strong and as noticed as you want it to be!! Become part of it and help make us grow into a fully professional, recognized association.
