Medicare Advantage

Skip Navigation LinksHome > Benefits > Medicare Advantage

The LGHIB has selected UnitedHealthcare® (UHC) to offer a custom UnitedHealthcare® Group Medicare Advantage (PPO) plan for all eligible retirees and their Medicare-eligible dependents. This plan has been exclusively designed for the LGHIB retirees. Only eligible retirees of local government units who have chosen to provide Medicare retiree coverage and their Medicare-eligible dependents can enroll in this plan.

As a UHC Medicare Advantage member, your plan will help give you value for your health care dollar, offering benefits and services beyond what you will find with Original Medicare (Parts A and B). You will have a team committed to understanding your needs, connecting you to the care you need and helping you manage your health. UHC will link you to health and wellness resources and even schedule your wellness visits, including arranging an annual visit.

You can find highlights of what the new plan provides below.
