Medicare Supplement Summary
Although Medicare Part A and Part B provide coverage for medically necessary health services, you may wish to enhance that health insurance with a Medicare Supplement Health Plan. The Episcopal Church Medical Trust Medicare Supplement Health Plans help eligible retirees pay many out-of-pocket expenses, such as copayments, coinsurances, and deductibles. The plans also pay for some services not covered under Medicare.
We offer three Medicare Supplement Health Plans:
These plans are also available without prescription drug coverage for eligible retirees who enroll directly with Medicare for Part D prescription coverage.
All Medicare Supplement Health Plans include, at no additional cost to you:
- Vision Benefits for an annual eye examination and prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses
- Hearing Benefits for purchasing and maintaining hearing aids
- SilverSneakers® providing access to workouts, fitness instruction and other benefits.
- Travel Medical Protection to help with healthcare costs outside the U.S. and other services when traveling at least 100 miles from your primary residence
- Employee Assistance Program providing mental health information, resources, and referrals
- Health Advocate to help you navigate the healthcare and insurance systems
In addition, we offer three dental plans.

Are you under age 65?
Retirees under age 65 who qualify under the Medical Trust's eligibility rules* can continue their active healthcare coverage at their own expense until they turn age 65 and are eligible for Medicare.
- If your former employer participates with the Medical Trust and you meet the eligibility rules, you have access to the health and dental plans offered by your former employer at the same group rates.

* Check with your group or diocesan administrator for eligibility requirements, or to inquire if your former group or employer contributes to the cost of their retirees' premiums.
