Medicare for UC Retirees
 

The Medicare Fact Sheet: UC's Medicare policies for retirees (PDF) describes UC's policies around Medicare for UC retirees.

Coordinating Medicare with UC retiree health plans is not automatic. Eligible retirees will receive instructions that state "Action Required" from the Retirement Administration Service Center starting three months prior to the month that they turn 65.

For local assistance from UC health plan specialists, particularly when you need to coordinate Medicare with UC retiree health insurance for the first time, call your HCF—ideally three months prior to the month that you turn 65.
