RETIREES
Pre-65 retirees and pre-65 dependents will remain on the same plans as active employees.  Separate pre-65 retiree premium rate charts will go into effect for the 2016 plan year. 
Medicare eligible retirees age 65 and over and Medicare eligible dependents age 65 and older will enroll in their supplemental healthcare coverage and receive the USG healthcare benefit in a new way in 2016.  Medicare Part A and B will provide primary coverage the same as today.  Supplemental coverage will be provided through the Aon Retiree Health Exchange and USG will deposit money into a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) for retirees and/or dependents to use towards premiums and other eligible out-of-pocket health care expenses. The Board of Regents approved the USG HRA funding of $2,736 per year or $228 per month per 65 and older Medicare eligible retiree and any 65 and older Medicare eligible covered dependent(s).  In order to receive the USG HRA funding, the retiree and/or dependent must be enrolled in coverage through the USG plan in 2015 and must purchase coverage through the Aon Retiree Health Exchange in 2016.  The enrollment period is October 1 through December 31, 2015 with a December 31st deadline for January 1, 2016 coverage begin date.
