They require certain state Medicare retirees who attained 25 years of service after June 30, 2007, and before June 28, 2011, or who retired on a disability retirement on or after August 1, 2007, and before June 28, 2011, to pay a health contribution of 1.5% of the retirement benefit unless the retired member is enrolled in the retiree wellness program.
