If you’re at or nearing 65, OPEIU has an exciting new option to help save you money and provide dependable health care benefits during your retirement.

OPEIU is pleased to now offer our Medicare-eligible union retirees comprehensive Medicare Advantage plans through a trusted national partner, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. These plans are available exclusively to retired OPEIU members and their spouses/partners and cannot be found or bought on the open Medicare market.

These plans offer enhanced services compared to the Individual Medicare market, brand name prescription drug benefits and gap (“donut hole”) coverage, nationwide access and value-added programs (like SilverSneakers® gym membership, telehealth, hearing and more).

To help you learn more about the program and decide if it’s right for you, OPEIU will be hosting an informational webinar on Wednesday, Oct. 6 at 3 p.m. EDT. Representatives will explain the many features of the plan and answer your questions. Please register here:

When: Oct 6, 2021, 03:00 p.m. Eastern Time (U.S. and Canada)
Topic: OPEIU Medicare Advantage Plan Information Session
