Attention retirees: Information about GA-23111 Plan F

CLEVELAND, January 23 -- Retired BLET members are being advised of the availability of coverage in addition to Medicare for railroad employees, their dependents, parents and parents-in-law.

If you or your dependents are covered by Medicare and become confined in a hospital, Medicare Part A and Part B pay a large portion of your hospital and physician charges. However, you will still owe the hospital the Medicare Part A deductible. In addition, you will also be responsible for the Medicare Part B deductible and generally 20% of the amount Medicare approves as covered for physician charges. Depending on the nature of the medical/surgical treatment you receive, you or your dependents could be responsible for hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

Through UnitedHealthcare, you can secure coverage for a substantial portion of these expenses by enrolling in Group Policy GA-23111 Plan F regardless of your current health status. A two-page flyer from UnitedHealthcare explains Group Policy GA-23111 Plan F in greater detail (click here).
