When retirees enrolled in the traditional MACo Health Care Trust Plan become Medicare eligible, they will receive information in the mail about how to enroll in the MACo Health Care Trust Group Medicare Advantage Plan administered through Blue Cross Blue Shield. Although MACo Health Care Trust Medicare eligible retirees will not have the option to stay on, or return to, the traditional MACo Health Care Trust Plan, the MACo Health Care Trust is confident that our Medicare eligible retiree members will receive the outstanding benefits and have less out-of-pocket costs in the long run.
Medicare retirees must be eligible for Part A and enrolled in Part B to take advantage of the MACo Health Care Trust Group Medicare Advantage Plan.
If a Medicare retiree currently has coverage for their spouse who is less than 65 years of age, the spouse will be eligible to remain on the traditional MACo Health Care Trust plan until they reach 65 year of age. Once the spouse reaches 65 years of age they will be eligible to transition over to the MACo Health Care Trust Group Medicare Advantage Plan.
