Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) for Retirees

Medicare retirees enrolled in SWCP or CFHP will be automatically enrolled in HealthSelectSM Medicare Advantage Plan preferred provider organization (MA PPO), insured by UnitedHealthcare with prescription drug coverage administered by UnitedHealthcare on September 1, if ERS has the retiree’s Medicare information on file by July 30. These participants can also choose to enroll in HealthSelect Secondary (administered by BCBSTX,) waive GBP health coverage or select Health Insurance Opt-Out Credit if they have other group health insurance comparable to GBP health insurance (Medicare does not count as comparable health coverage). If we do not have the retiree’s Medicare information by July 30, we will enroll that retiree in HealthSelect Secondary on September 1. 

Both SWCP and CFHP will be available for several months after September 1 to answer any questions you may have and support your transition to HealthSelect plan. The plan websites, your account information and the ERS dedicated call center will be available as follows:
