The PERS Health Insurance Program has scheduled New Enrollment presentations throughout the year for those retirees who will become Medicare eligible whether due to turning 65 years of age or due to disability within the next 18 months. We also encourage PERS members to attend who may be considering retirement in the next year and have questions regarding their healthcare options at retirement.
These presentations include Medicare enrollment timelines, PHIP medical and dental plans, and an overview of our program. Pre-registration is not required and presentations last approximately 1.5 to 2 hours.
PHIP offers an annual plan change period from October 1 to November 15. During this time you can change your medical and/or dental plan to a plan available within your residing area. This annual plan change period is not an opportunity to add dental or dependents. Changes made during this period will become effective on January 1.
These presentations for current enrolled PHIP members to review the 2018 plan year changes. Presentations begin September 11, 2017 and end October 9, 2017. Pre-registration is not required and presentations last approximately 1.5 to 2 hours.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the printed schedule may change. Plan change presentations in The Dalles, Pendleton and Prineville have been cancelled due to hazardous conditions. For questions regarding the presentation schedule, contact PHIP at (800) 768-7377.
