Group Medicare Advantage plans
UnitedHealthcare Retiree Solutions is a nationally recognized market leader in Group Medicare plans, providing employers and plan sponsors with tested, tactical health care strategies. Over the years, UnitedHealthcare has developed an effective, proven approach to managing group health plans for retirees.
What is Group Medicare?
Group Medicare Advantage plans (Medicare Part C) are health insurance plans that employers and plan sponsors can customize for retirees. Group Medicare Advantage plans often provide benefits like vision, dental and hearing coverage not included with Original Medicare (Medicare Part A and B). Retirees may enjoy lower out-of-pocket costs and coverage that’s comparable or better than the coverage they had while working.

Choosing a Group Medicare plan for your retirees
UnitedHealthcare can help you decide which plan and programs can best provide exceptional benefits for your retirees, at a cost that meets your requirements as plan sponsor. We can work with you to design a group retirement health coverage plan that includes the benefits you want to offer, aligned with your financial and strategic goals.
How to select the right Group Medicare provider
Group medical and prescription drug plans can be a tremendous benefit for your retirees, but finding the right plan and partner can be a challenge. If you or your organization are new to offering group retiree coverage, our representatives can help guide you through the process. If a review of your current plan showed gaps in coverage, support or retiree satisfaction, we can help you find ways to provide cost-effective coverage that fits your budget and business plan.
You can feel more confident about your choices when you understand everything you need to consider, including your full range of options and the associated costs. You can start by using the following four questions to guide your search and selection process.
Retiree health coverage is not one-size-fits-all. Be sure to choose a health insurance provider that offers a broad portfolio of plans and programs, including:
Group and individual Medicare Advantage plans
Group and individual Medicare prescription drug plans
Medicare Supplement plans
Programs and services for health and wellness
An effective retiree health insurance insurer should provide well-trained advisors and call center staff. These professionals can help answer questions about plans, benefits, drug formularies and more. They’ll help put your retirees’ minds at ease, and can help ensure a smooth transition.
A provider with strong administrative capabilities can help deliver a benefits program that satisfies your executive team and plan participants. Decide how much support you’ll need for enrollment, ongoing program administration and eligibility management. Look for a provider that can offer support over the long term.
Effective, engaging wellness programs may help improve retirees’ health and reduce rates of hospital admissions. Choose an insurer that offers smoking cessation, weight loss programs and other services designed to promote a healthy lifestyle.
