section  1  of  part  I of chapter 55 of the laws of 2012, is amended to

  S 167-a. Reimbursement for medicare [premium] charges. Upon  exclusion
from  the  coverage  of the health benefit plan of supplementary medical
insurance benefits for which an active or retired employee or a  depend-

other  intervals  to  such  active  or  retired employee from the health

insurance program premium charges under this section. This cost shall be
