• Pre-65 Retirees – Overview

    Non-Medicare eligible retirees will continue to be covered through our Anthem health care plans. The annual retiree open enrollment period for 2017 is November 1—23, 2016 for pre-65 retirees. During this time, pre-65 retirees that are currently enrolled in health care or dental coverage may change plan options and add or drop dependents. Enrollment information, rates, plan details, and Open Enrollment Information Session dates will be mailed to the homes of eligible retirees before the Open Enrollment period. The only other time you are able to change plans or add dependents is within 60 days of when you experience a qualifying event.

    What you need to do…

    • Review your current retiree benefit selections. Your current selections for health and/or dental will continue into 2017 at the new rates unless you make a change during Open Enrollment.
    • If you want to make a change for 2017, submit an enrollment form with your changes for health and/or dental to HCPS Health Benefits, PO Box 23120, Henrico, VA 23223 by November 23, 2016.

    2017 Retiree Health Care for Pre-65 Retirees

    Medicare Eligible Retirees (65+)

    The Medicare Open Enrollment period is from October 15 through December 7, 2016 for coverage effective January 1, 2017. The Open Enrollment period is the time for Medicare eligible retirees to review their current coverage choices and, if desired, enroll in new plans for 2017. A fall newsletter from OneExchange will provide information about Medicare’s Open Enrollment. Retirees enrolled through OneExchange will receive this newsletter by email (if you have provided a valid email address and not opted out of receiving emails) or by U.S Mail.

    You may want to review your Plans if:

    • Your prescriptions have changed during this year and you want to see if there is a Part D Prescription Drug Plan available in 2017 that better meets your needs.
    • You have moved during the year to a new ZIP code.
    • You want to compare 2017 premiums of comparable plans.

    To re-evaluate or change your plan choices, you must contact OneExchange during the Open Enrollment period. The OneExchange number is 1+844-256-0914.
