Medicare Sending New ID Cards

Medicare is mailing new Medicare cards beginning April 1, 2018, through April 1, 2019. The new cards will no longer include individuals’ Social Security numbers. Instead, a new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) number will be assigned to each individual. Learn more here or at at Medicare.gov.

UnitedHealthcare does not use Social Security numbers or HICNs on its ID cards. The UnitedHealthcare ID cards will not change.

Avoid scams: Medicare will never initiate calls about your new card, or ask to verify information over the phone!

 

Cigna to Acquire Express Scripts

On March 8, 2018 Cigna announced that it will acquire Express Scripts. This transaction will not change your benefits or how you obtain your prescriptions at this time. Learn more about the proposed transaction here.

 

Medicare Supplement Health Plans

We offer three Medicare Supplement Health Plans to reduce your out-of-pocket medical expenses:

See Medicare Supplement for more information. For detailed information about each plan, download the 2019 Medicare Supplement Handbook (also see the 2018 Medicare Supplement Handbook).

 

Are You Under 65?

If you retired before age 65 and qualify under the Medical Trust's eligibility rules*, you can continue your healthcare coverage at your own expense until you turn 65 and are eligible for Medicare.

  • If your former employer participates with the Medical Trust, you have access to the health and dental plans they offer, at the same group rates.
