Medicare & Employer Health Coverage - a Coordination Conversation

On-Demand Webinar

Written by benefitexpress | March 2, 2020

Medicare and employer coverage

While Millennials and Generation Z seem to be the talk of the town when it comes to generation-based employee benefits, Baby Boomers have not been forgotten. In fact, around 29% of boomers ages 65 to 72 are employed or actively looking for work, with their own unique set of medical and lifestyle needs to consider. 

Enter: Medicare! 

Whether Baby Boomers (and/or the Silent Generation) make up the majority of your workforce the minority, every employer, HR professional or benefits administrator needs to be up-to-date on how Medicare coordinates with employer health coverage, including ACA, COBRA and HSAs. 

Background

Medicare was created in 1965 when people aged 65 and older found it increasingly difficult to get private health insurance coverage. Medicare has made access to health care a universal right for Americans once they reach age 65, helping to improve the health and longevity of older Americans.

That said, a good portion of American workers qualify for Medicare - meaning plan sponsors, benefits administrators, and human resources professionals need to be in-the-know on how Medicare coordinates with other types of health coverage.

In this webinar, we take a deep dive into the complexities of coordinating Medicare and employer coverage
