  • HealthSelect Medicare Advantage 

    HealthSelect Medicare Advantage is a health insurance plan for retirees, survivors, and their dependents who are covered by Medicare.

    As with all GBP coverage, you must continue to pay for Medicare Part B premiums; however, you pay less for dependent premiums and the plan has no yearly deductible – it even covers the Medicare deductible. HealthSelect Medicare Advantage also offers additional benefits, such as gym memberships and discounted health and wellness services.

    Schedule an in-person appointment with a Medicare Advantage Customer Care representative at your local Guidance Center. Customer care representatives can answer questions about claims, benefits and more.

    You are eligible if you are retired and you are enrolled in Medicare.

    Your dependents, as well as surviving spouses and surviving children, are eligible if they are:

      • at least age 65 or certified as disabled by the SSA with Medicare,
      • enrolled in Medicare Part A (hospital) and Part B (other medical) coverage, and
      • living in the United States or Puerto Rico.

    A retiree and any dependents (spouse or disabled child) who are enrolled in Medicare must have the same health plan.

    Medicare  

    HealthSelect Medicare Advantage replaces both original Medicare and other GBP coverage as your primary and secondary coverage. This plan also covers the Medicare deductible.

    Returning to work 

    If you return to work in a benefits-eligible position, you will no longer be eligible for HealthSelect Medicare Advantage and HealthSelect Medicare Rx. Your coverage will revert to your previous GBP coverage.
