Information for those not yet eligible for Medicare
(generally under age 65)
As you approach your retirement, it’s important to understand when your active team member health care coverage
ends, consider the health care coverage options available to you in retirement, and understand what happens to funds
in your health account once you retire.

Your active team member medical, dental, and vision coverage will end at the end of the month in which your last day
of employment takes place. Coverage for your enrolled dependents will end when your coverage ends.

Keep in mind that retiree medical coverage when you’re not yet eligible for
Medicare is generally far more expensive than active team member coverage
for a number of reasons. The average age and unique health care needs of
participants in retiree medical plans results in higher monthly premiums for
all participants in the plan. In addition, most team members pay the full cost
of retiree health care coverage rather than only paying a portion of the cost
as they did when they were enrolled in active team member coverage.

Via Benets™
Via Benets is a voluntary Medicare coordinator service that oers you and your Medicare-eligible dependents support
in making your individual Medicare plan enrollment decisions. If you are eligible for Via Benets, you’ll have access to
a wide variety of individual Medicare plans available in your area. You can choose from Medicare Advantage, Medicare
Supplement, and Medicare Prescription Drug plans with dierent coverage oerings and monthly premiums. You’ll
also have access to retiree dental and vision plan options. A team of Medicare experts, called benet advisors, will
provide you with personalized support in selecting and enrolling in an individual Medicare plan that’s the best t for
your unique health needs and that works within your budget.
Enrolling in coverage through Via Benets
You can elect coverage through Via Benets up to three months before the day your active team member medical
coverage ends. As long as you elect coverage prior to your last day of employment, your coverage will generally be
eective the rst of the month after your last day of employment. If you do not elect medical coverage prior to your
last day of employment, you will experience a gap in coverage between your coverage as an active team member and
the coverage you elect through Via Benets.
What is Via Benets?
Via Benets is a voluntary private Medicare
coordinator service. It is not a public health
insurance exchange. Public exchanges were
established under the Aordable Care Act and
are sometimes referred to as federal or state
insurance exchanges.
