  • Retiring members and/or dependents that are Medicare-eligible whose retirement is approved 60 days or greater from the benefit effective date will be automatically enrolled into the UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage Base Plan. The base plan is premium-free for retiree-only coverage. Retirees will have up to 30 days prior to their benefit effective date to change plans. If no action is taken, retirees will remain in the UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage Base Plan. Changes to plan elections can be made during the next Open Enrollment period. If the retiree has dependents that are non-Medicare Primary, they will be automatically enrolled into the health plan they were enrolled in as an active dependent.
