Review plan benefits & costs

UnitedHealthcare® now administers the HealthSelect Medicare Rx (PDP) plan.

Enrollment in the HealthSelect Medicare Rx plan is easy. If you were enrolled and your coverage was effective in the HealthSelect Medicare Rx prior to January 2017, you were automatically transitioned to UnitedHealthcare, which became the plan administrator beginning January 1, 2017. You did not need to fill out an enrollment form or take further action.

If you become eligible for Medicare during the year, please follow ERS’ instructions for how to enroll in this plan.
