20 Changes for Medicare Eligible Retirees The Medicare Advantage Private Fee (MA PFFS) for Service Plans will be replaced by the Medicare Advantage Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) Plans This change is due to the requirement by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that all national and private MA PFFS plans offer a PPO network Medicare-eligible retirees may still elect any other option (HMO, HRA, or HDHP) but will pay the full cost

21 CIGNA-Humana Alliance CIGNA’s Medicare Advantage Private Fee-for-Service Plan will be replaced by the Humana Group Medicare Advantage PPO due to a newly formed alliance between CIGNA and Humana and the information receive will show the Humana name Since retirees may also receive information from other MA Plans, including Humana, retirees should only be concerned with mail that says for SHBP Retirees on the envelope

22 Medicare Advantage PPO Plans The Four Medicare Advantage PPO options offered in 2011 are: –Humana Group Medicare Advantage PPO Standard –Humana Group Medicare Advantage PPO Premium –United Healthcare Medicare Advantage PPO Standard –United Healthcare Medicare Advantage PPO Premium

24 Medicare Advantage PPO Plans Retirees can seek care from any provider that accepts Medicare (regardless if they have a signed contract with the health care vendor) If the retiree sees a provider who does not accept Medicare assignment, the retiree will be balance billed

25 Important Reminders-Retirees If eligible and the retiree selects any option other than one of the MA PPO Options, they will pay the entire cost of the premium If the retiree is enrolled in a SHBP MA PPO option they should NOT enroll in an individual Medicare Part D or Medicare Advantage Plan as doing so will cause the retiree to lose their SHBP coverage

26 Important Reminders-Retirees Retirees enrolled in one of the CIGNA or United Healthcare (UHC) Medicare Advantage (MA PFFS) Plans will receive a cancellation notice from their health care vendor advising them that their current MA PFFS option will end December 31, 2010 Retirees should not be alarmed-This notice is a requirement of CMS. Their new coverage under the MA PPO Option will take effect January 1, 2011

27 Important Reminders-Retirees Medicare Advantage enrollment is optional for retirees under age 65.
