Medicare Advantage

The SEIB has selected UnitedHealthcare® (UHC) to offer a custom UnitedHealthcare® Group Medicare Advantage (PPO) plan for all eligible retirees and their Medicare-eligible dependents. This plan is a custom plan, designed exclusively for SEIB retirees and should not be confused with Individual UnitedHealthcare (UHC) Medicare Advantage plans. Under this plan, you will have an enhanced benefit package, which includes fixed copays and lower out-of-pocket costs.

As a UHC Medicare Advantage member, your plan will help give you value for your health care dollar, offering benefits and services beyond what you will find with Original Medicare (Parts A and B). You will have a team committed to understanding your needs, connecting you to the care you need and helping you manage your health. UHC will link you to health and wellness resources and even schedule your wellness visits, including arranging an annual visit.

Additional information can be found by visiting UnitedHealthcare® .
