Medicare Retirees

The LGHIB offers 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 healthcare 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 schedule your wellness visits, including arranging an annual visit.

You can find highlights of what the plan provides below. If you would like more information about available programs and resources, you can visit our Virtual Education Center.

Termination of Coverage

We don't want to see you leave, but we understand that things happen. Whether you wish to enroll in another Medicare Advantage program, or if you don't pay the premiums*, to cancel coverage, you'll need to complete a cancellation form.


Benefits, features and/or devices vary by plan/area. Limitations and exclusions apply.

Plans are insured through UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company or one of its affiliated companies, a Medicare Advantage organization with a Medicare contract. Enrollment in the plan depends on the plan’s contract renewal with Medicare.
