     7  ent covered by the health benefit plan is or would be eligible under the
     8  federal  old-age,  survivors and disability insurance program, an amount
     9  equal to the premium charge and any other additional  charges  for  such
    10  supplementary  medical  insurance  benefits  for  such active or retired
    11  employee and his or her dependents, if any, shall be paid monthly or  at
    12  other  intervals  to  such  active  or  retired employee from the health
