Thinking about retirement? Have you visited the ASRS website lately?
Please note: THE OPTION YOU PICK IS A ONE-TIME CHOICE
1. You can do COBRA for up to 18 months with the following premiums:
Copay Gold plan (would need to be on this grandfathered plan at time of retirement)
*The only option for Dental is Delta Dental with Cobra or purchase it directly from ASRS. Your Dental Payment will be made to Meritain directly. They will bill you as well.
**Meritain handles COBRA. Once they get your retirement date they will send you all the information you need, you would pay Meritain directly.
2. Another option is to enroll in the District's Value Gold Retiree Plan and stay on this until you reach Medicare age (click here for our Medicare Advocate contact information). The per month premium 22/23 are as follows:
*With this option, you will be paying the premium directly to the District until you reach Medicare age.
The Benefits Coordinator can submit the Premium Benefit form to ASRS once you have an official date of retirement. I will just need to know the date and what Medical plan you will be going with. ASRS sends the benefit to the District and you will either get a credit for the Value Gold or we send it to Meritain and they bill you the difference if you are on COBRA.
