FEHB and Medicare Part B

UPMC Health Plan has designed the Standard Option HMO to assist you with your Part B payment by offering a lower monthly premium than the High Option HMO.

Coinsurance does not apply after you meet your plan deductible.

Here's how it works:

  1. Choose to enroll in the Standard Option.
  2. Choose to enroll in Medicare Part B along with Medicare Part A.
  3. Your deductible then decreases so that it's equal to the High Option.
  4. Your coinsurance is reduced to zero.
  5. You’ll receive up to $600 in premium reimbursement through a health reimbursement arrangement (HRA).
  6. Set up a reimbursement by using these forms:

Remember, all plan options include a health incentive account (HIA) that enables you to earn up to $250 for Individual coverage.

Here's a side-by-side comparison:
