DETROIT (WKZO) -- Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr is planning to change health care for city retirees.  The proposal would replace the current benefits for retirees under 65 with a reported 125-dollar monthly stipend to buy coverage, which would go into effect January 1st, under the Affordable Care Act.

According to Orr, city of Detroit retirees over 65 will be covered by Medicare.  The plans will be sold through Michigan's insurance exchange beginning October 1st, but it's not yet known how much coverage will cost.
