Medicare and Employer-Sponsored Health Plans: Know the Rules and Avoid Problems

HRWebAdvisor

Recorded Online
Webcast

As the average age of retirement increases and various forms of phased retirement continue to gain popularity, employers are getting more questions on how Medicare coverage and employer-sponsored health coverage for active employees and retirees work (or don’t work) together.

The Medicare alphabet itself (Parts A, B, C, and D), and eligibility rules, can be confusing. Employers that sponsor health coverage for their employees or retirees need to know how Medicare and the employer’s coverage interact so the employer can ensure that its health plans don’t violate Medicare rules.

Join Christine Williams, senior counsel at Perkins Coie, as she explains the rules and how to avoid Medicare problems.

This webinar will cover:

  • What do Medicare Parts A, B, C, and D cover and who is eligible?
  • Who pays first--Medicare or employer-sponsored health coverage?
  • Is an employer allowed to encourage employees to enroll in Medicare and drop the employer’s health coverage?
  • If an employee has Medicare and drops the employer’s health coverage, can the employee’s younger spouse stay on the employer’s coverage?
  • Is an employer allowed to reimburse employees for Medicare premiums?
  • What are retiree-only plans and which ACA rules apply to them?
  • How does Medicare affect health savings account eligibility and health reimbursement arrangement spending?
  • Can an employee who retirees enroll in both COBRA and in Medicare?
  • How should a Summary Plan Description address Medicare issues?
  • And much more!
