- Benefits automatically increase to cover Medicare’s gaps
- You choose the doctors and hospital you want
- Competitive rates
- Spouse coverage available
- No waiting period if you switch from another plan
There are several important reasons why we think the NEA Retiree Health Program just might be the best choice you can make:
Lower Group Rates
The NEA Plan’s rates average at least 15% lower than the nation’s most popular Medicare supplement program. And that means if you already have a Medicare supplement policy, if you switch, it could be like getting more than a month of free coverage this year.
Freedom of Choice
The NEA Plan is not an HMO. It gives you the freedom to choose your own doctor or hospital to whom benefits can be paid.
As long as you’re at least age 65, an NEA member in good standing (or her/his spouse or domestic partner), and covered by Medicare parts A and B, you are eligible to enroll in any one of the NEA Retiree Health Plan Options. During open enrollment periods and when you enroll in Medicare Part B for the first time, you do not have to answer any medical questions for enrollment in any Plan Option. You cannot be turned down for health reasons!
The NEA Retiree Health Program provides all of the same plan options and benefits of other Medicare supplement programs. However, the Program offers you more advantages including discounts on dental care, chiropractic care, vision care, hearing care, and vitamins.
Plus, You Get Dependability
The NEA Retiree Health Program is underwritten by United American Insurance Company. The NEA Members Insurance Trust selected United American to give you the same benefits at the best price that thousands of NEA members enjoy. United American Insurance Company has been serving policy holders with quality insurance since 1947 and is rated A+ Superior by A.M. Best (6/15).
