2018 year marks the 20th year of the plan. Since 1999, we have had the pleasure of working with your Electric Boat Representatives - the MDA, the MTC, the Retired Salaried Employee’s Association and Electric Boat to design, communicate, implement and service a Retiree Medical and Prescription Drug Plan for Electric Boat Retirees, widows and spouses who covered under Medicare Parts A & B. At the present time, there are over 2,700 Electric Boat retirees and spouses throughout the country participating in the program.
The program has three different medical plans through the Hartford Insurance Company, two different prescription drug plans through Express Scripts and two dental plans through MetLife.
Important things to remember prior to enrolling into the Electric Boat Medical and Prescription Drug plan:
If I currently have other coverage through an employer or through my spouse, can I elect not to participate in the Electric Boat Medical and Prescription Drug plan, and will I be able to elect coverage at a later date?
Yes, you will be able to waive coverage and enroll at the time you lose your existing coverage. You will be able to choose between any of the medical and prescription drug plan options.
I enrolled in an individual Medicare Plan and would like to cancel that coverage and join the EB plan, what are my options?
You can elect enrollment into the program, if you chose not to participate at the time of our eligibility through EB, you can enroll in any medical plan but are only allowed to join the Limited Prescription drug program.
Our hope is to provide you with enough insight and enough information into the pros and cons of the different plans so that you may make an informed decision about which plan options are most appropriate for you.
