Medicare enrollees, learn about two new PEBB medical plans

Tue, 09/15/2020

Starting in January 2021, the PEBB Program will add two new Medicare Advantage PPO plans with prescription drug coverage (MAPD). These plans are administered by UnitedHealthcare. They will be available nationwide to PEBB retirees and PEBB Continuation Coverage (COBRA) members enrolled in Medicare Part A and Part B. Members will be able to see any provider who accepts Medicare.

MAPD plans provide all of the benefits under Medicare Part A and Part B (called Original Medicare), as well as Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D). Many Medicare Advantage plans — including the new PEBB plans — also offer more benefits than Original Medicare, such as vision and hearing coverage, gym membership, and alternative medicine.

Join us to learn more

Learn more about these plans by attending a virtual town hall in October. Some town halls will be teleconferences (phone call only). Teleconferences are noted below. Others are video calls that include a visual presentation. You can choose to attend whichever best suits your needs. During these town halls, representatives from UnitedHealthcare will present details about these plans and answer your questions. All times listed are in Pacific Time.

Registration is not required.
