Frequently Asked Questions

Does SHBP Subsidize Retiree Premiums?

SHBP ONLY subsidizes premiums for Retirees age 65 or older enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan option. Therefore, for Retirees to continue receiving a subsidy toward the cost of their Retiree coverage, Retirees (and their Spouses/Dependents) age 65 or older must enroll in one of the SHBP Medicare Advantage plan options.

Do Retirees Age 65 or Older have to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan option?

Retirees (and their Spouses/Dependents) age 65 or older may remain enrolled in one of the Commercial (non-Medicare Advantage) Plan Options available to Active Members, but they will pay the entire cost of coverage with no subsidy from SHBP which is significantly higher.
