8 Aging Into Medicare Retirees aging into Medicare are automatically enrolled into either Humana or UnitedHealthcare s Group Medicare Advantage Base Plan. 50/50 split between the two companies If you wish to select a different plan option other than the one to which you are assigned, you will need to call the Eligibility and Enrollment Support Center at or log into ORBIT and change your plan through the eenroll system. You will not be able to change plans again until the next Annual Enrollment period. 8

9 Disability If you become eligible for Medicare due to disability, it is very important for you to enroll in both Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B. Do not overlook accepting Medicare Part B. Many people fail to accept the offer to retroactively purchase Medicare Part B. State Health Plan becomes SECONDARY to Medicare as of the Medicare eligibility date. Claims will be reprocessed back to Medicare eligibility date. The State Health Plan will reduce your claims by the amount that would have been paid under Medicare, paying the remaining claim amount under the terms of the health benefit plan. As a result, if you do not enroll in Medicare Part B, you will be responsible for the amount that would have been paid by Medicare Part B. 9

10 Medicare Advantage & Other Insurance Enrollment in other insurance coverage may result in disenrollment from our group Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plans. If disenrollment occurs subscriber or dependent (if applicable) would be placed automatically in the Traditional 70/30 plan. Enrollment in another Part D prescription drug plan (PDP) or Medicare Advantage plan can also cause you to be disenrolled from your SHP plan. When enrolled in a MAPDP, you can not purchase a Medicare Supplement or Medigap plan without terminating the MAPDP. If already enrolled in an individual Medicare Advantage or Part D prescription drug plan, your coverage will terminate when autoenrolled unless you opt out of these Group Medicare Advantage plans. 10

11 TRICARE & Other Insurance TRICARE for Life (TRICARE + Medicare) TRICARE for Life beneficiaries can enroll in Medicare Advantage plans and TRICARE will reimburse your copayments for services covered by TRICARE. TRICARE pays secondary to the Medicare Advantage plan. You cannot use Medicare or Medicare Advantage in a Military Treatment Facility, like a VA Hospital. TRICARE beneficiaries have a robust pharmacy benefit and typically don t need additional prescription drug coverage. If covered by another Employer Group Health Plan, it is important to check with them before enrolling in one of these Medicare Advantage plans. Federal Employee Health Benefit Plans (FEHBP) Other former employer retiree group health plans 11

12 Re-employment and State Health Plan General Assembly passed legislation to create a new eligibility category for non-permanent full-time employees to comply with the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Directed State Health Plan to offer a health benefit for newly eligible employees that is not greater than the bronze level as defined under ACA. High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) created which meets the bronze level requirements. Employing units are responsible for determining eligibility for this plan. Includes non-permanent employees who work at least 30 hours per week. Employing units are required to cover re-hired State retirees as active employees if they are determined to meet definition of full-time employee. Eligible re-hired retirees are NOT eligible for retiree health benefit coverage. Retiree are not required to enroll in HDHP but no longer eligible for State Health Plan under Retirement Systems. State Health Plan will terminate the retiree from retiree group coverage under Retirement Systems. 12
