OPERS provides health care coverage for eligible benefit recipients who have 20 years of qualifying service credit and retire from either the Traditional Pension Plan or the Combined Plan. Although the OPERS understands the importance of offering meaningful health care coverage, our board has the discretion to review, rescind, modify or change our health care coverage at any time.
OPERS offers medical coverage for retirees and their eligible dependents. Your monthly cost for medical/pharmacy coverage depends upon your Medicare status, years of service credit and date of retirement. OPERS also offers optional dental and vision coverage at an additional cost.
OPERS offers the Humana Medicare Advantage Plan to Medicare eligible participants and their Medicare eligible dependents. Participants not yet eligible for Medicare will be enrolled in the OPERS Retiree Health Plan administered by Medical Mutual.
