I am retired with Medicare. I will be transitioning to the Medicare Exchange. May I keep the PEBP Dental plan?
I was initially hired on or after January 1, 2012. Will I be eligible for the retiree health insurance premium subsidy at retirement?
I am retired and have Tricare for Life. Am I required to enroll in a medical plan through the Medicare Exchange to receive a Years of Service HRA contribution?
An otherwise eligible retiree who has Tricare for Life and Medicare Parts A and B will not be required to enroll in a medical plan through the Medicare Exchange. However, before PEBP will authorize the Years of Service HRA funding, PEBP will require a copy of the retiree’s military ID card and Medicare Parts A and B card.
Yes, PEBP requires all retirees who are eligible for premium-free Medicare Part A to enroll in Part A coverage. PEBP also requires retirees to purchase Medicare Part B coverage at age 65 (or under age 65 if Medicare eligible due to a disability), regardless of whether a retiree qualifies for free Part A.
