check retiree health insurance

Monday, February 11, 2013

My former employer - very large co - determined that group health insurance was more expensive than insuring directly. They were right!! Next sign-up date, or your first under medicare, check around. AARP has some discounted plans. My plan is much less expensive directly from the insurance company than it is from my former employer.
Who knew!!!!

    The law does allow companies to drop health insurance for retirees with no penalty. Mom just went through this. She has dementia so I was the one making the calls. There are a lot of very good options for people already on Medicare. The problem comes for the people who retired before 65 thinking they'd be covered. That would be me. I just hope my husband's company maintains retiree health for the next year and a half.

    Tricky stuff. A colleague worked for a large company, thought her insurance was good for life when she retired. Well they pulled the rug out from her, and she is working with us now for the benefits.
