As a retiree, your medical options depend on your Medicare eligibility.
To enroll in any of our retiree medical plans, you must be enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B. Eligible dependents who are age 65 and older or who receive Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) also must be enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B. They must be a U.S. citizen, or a permanent resident lawfully residing in the U.S for at least five continuous years. Medicare requires that you pay a premium for Part B in addition to the premium you pay for your Stanford retiree health plan. Retirees and their eligible dependents do not need to enroll in Medicare Part D because Stanford offers prescription drug coverage in its medical plans (view the Medicare Notice of Credible Coverage). Visit www.medicare.gov and www.ssa.gov for more information.
|Non-Medicare Eligible (Under age 65)||Medicare Eligible (65 and older)|
