What if I am
under age 65?
If you retire before attaining age 65, you are eligible to participate in the ICUBA BCBS medical plan, Delta dental plan, and EyeMed vision plan that you were enrolled in at the time of your retirement.
Retirees can cover their eligible spouses/dependents who were covered at retirement.
When should I elect Medicare Part A?
If you qualify for premium-free Part A, you should enroll when you turn 65. If you have to pay a premium for Part A, you can delay Part A until you (or your spouse) stop working or lose employer sponsored coverage.
You will NOT pay a penalty for delaying Part A, as long as you enroll within 8 months of losing your coverage or stopping work (whichever happens first).
When is Retiree coverage active?
Retiree coverage is active within 10 business days of losing employee coverage. You will experience a gap in coverage, until your coverage is active.
Coverage will be retroactive from your eligibility date once your elections have been received.
ICUBA's carriers need about 10 business days to process your elections.
What if I am
age 65 or older?
If you retire at age 65 or older, you can elect the AmWINS Medicare Supplement through ICUBA or shop for coverage in the marketplace.
You, and your eligible dependents , can continue dental or vision directly with ICUBA if you were enrolled at the time of retirement.
When should I elect Medicare Part B?
You can delay Part B until you (or your spouse) stop working or lose employer sponsored coverage, and you will NOT pay a penalty for delaying Medicare, as long as you enroll within 8 months of losing your coverage or stopping work (whichever happens first).
Retiree coverage is not considered employer sponsored health insurance.
Will I get new member ID cards?
If you or your spouse are electing the AmWINS Medicare Supplement plans, you will receive new ID cards once your coverage is active.
If you are continuing with ICUBA plans, your member ID number will remain the same for medical, dental, and vision insurance.
What is Medicare
Medicare Part A helps cover inpatient hospital care, skilled nursing facility care, hospice care, and home health care.
