Why Medicare Advantage?

The ARBenefits Group Medicare Advantage (PPO) plan differs from other Medicare plans you might see advertised. Retirees will see significant savings on their monthly plan premiums, as well as access to services that aren’t currently available. Specialized benefits offered on this plan include:

  • free gym membership
  • enhanced hearing and vision benefits
  • dental and drug coverage
  • the ability to see any provider (in or out of network) as long as they accept Medicare
  • access to in-home visits to review your health history and perform a health screening
  • access to support when recovering from hospital stays

Important Information

How do I enroll?

You will be sent a letter approximately 90 days before you become Medicare eligible and you can select the Medicare Advantage Plan OR you can reach out to the Employee Benefits Division for assistance.

Need More Information?

UnitedHealthcare will host in-person, online, and phone informational sessions, allowing you to learn more about your new plan.
