Group Medicare plans for retirees

Find the right group plan for your retirees

It’s more challenging than ever to find the right solution for retiree health care coverage. The number of employees who are eligible for retirement is growing. People are living longer in retirement and their lifestyles are changing too.

Now is a great time to re-evaluate your retiree benefits package–for the good of your business, and the good of your workforce. You can find robust health care coverage that meets the needs of your retirees. You’ll also find plans to meet your business and budget requirements. Explore what’s possible with UnitedHealthcare's Group Medicare plans.

Group Medicare plans designed to help you achieve your business goals

Knowing what you need from a group Medicare plan is the first step in choosing coverage. Do you want to maintain current benefit levels, but lower your costs? Is it time to transition your retirees to individual Medicare coverage plans, or encourage them to get coverage through an exchange? Whatever your specific business needs may be, UnitedHealthcare will work with you to find group plans and coverage options to meet them.

What’s the difference between Medicare and Group Medicare?

There are distinct differences in the level of coverage available from individual Medicare plans and group Medicare plans. Learn how a group Medicare plan can provide more comprehensive coverage for your employees.


Medicare, also known as Original Medicare or Medicare Parts A and B, is a federal government health insurance program available to people who are 65 or older. People under 65 may qualify if they have a disability or other special situation. Medicare helps millions of Americans cover some of their health care costs.

Group Medicare Advantage plans

Employers and plan sponsors can offer Group Medicare Advantage plans to employees when they retire.

Group Medicare Advantage plans typically reduce the gaps in coverage associated with Original Medicare. These plans help retirees retain the same or a similar level of coverage they enjoyed before retiring.

UnitedHealthcare offers several Group Medicare Advantage plans

UnitedHealthcare will work with you to design Group Medicare Advantage plans that fit your unique needs. You can offer your retirees cost-effective, comprehensive coverage and a seamless post-retirement transition to your group plan.
