The Humana Interim Plan
The Humana Interim Plan is the plan OPERS will provide for Medicare-eligible retirees who are not eligible to participate in the OPERS Medicare Connector. These retirees include:
- Medicare-eligible re-employed retirees and their eligible dependents - A re-employed retiree is one receiving a pension while also being employed by an OPERS-covered employer.
- Medicare-eligible retirees under age 65 with end-stage renal disease (ESRD)
The Humana Interim Plan is terminating Dec. 31, 2017. As a result, plan participants will automatically transition to the Medical Mutual Medicare Plan, administered by Medical Mutual. Plan coverage will not change.
Like the Humana Interim Plan, the Medical Mutual Medicare Plan acts as secondary coverage to Medicare.
