Stop, Look & Listen: Railroad Retirement Benefits Q&A

Answers are provided by Robert S. Kaufman

Filing Health Insurance Claims for Rail Workers

(Posted April 15, 2009)

Question 701: Regarding Medical Insurance for Railroad employees, where do you mail claims?

Answer: I can't tell from your question if you want information about health insurance claims for active and retired rail workers under the various National Health & Welfare Plans. The plans are established through collective bargaining and hence are not part of Railroad Retirement. Most of these plans are administered by either:

United Healthcare, P.O. Box 30985 , Salt Lake City UT 84130-0985,
(800) 842-9905; or

Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield , Railroad Dedicated Unit, P.O. Box 890381, Camp Hill PA 17089-0381, 866-267-3320.

The company responsible for processing the claim is determined by where the rail worker lives.

If you mean Medicare Part B claims for rail workers, those claims are handled by Palmetto GBA, Railroad Medicare Part B, P.O. Box 10066, Augusta GA 30999, (888) 355-9165.
