Open Enrollment: Enrollment Instructions for Medicare Eligible Retirees

You don’t have to take any action to be enrolled in the Medicare Open Access PPO. You will be enrolled automatically effective January 1, 2020 and will receive a new Aetna ID card in late December.

We advise you to remain enrolled in the REHP medical and prescription drug plan coverage.

If you want to opt out of the new plan, you will need to do so by November 8, 2019. Just call the PEBTF at 1-800-522-7279, Tuesday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday (or the first day following a holiday weekend).

Keep in mind: If you opt out, you and any covered dependents will be terminated from REHP medical and prescription benefits. You’ll need to enroll in other medical and prescription coverage outside of the REHP. In addition, you are only allowed one opportunity to re-enroll in benefits once you’ve opted out.
