health coverage choices depend on age
Beginning January 1, 2017, health coverage choices will depend on if you (or your eligible dependents) are pre-65 (under age 65) or are post-65 (age 65 or over).
pre-65 health coverage
Pre-65 (under age 65) eligible participants will currently continue to be able to participate in generally the same Chevron group health choices. Pre-65 eligible participants will make enrollment choices during the Chevron open enrollment period, October 17 through October 28, 2016.
post-65 health coverage
Post-65 (age 65 and over) eligible participants will only be able to enroll in individual medical, prescription drug, dental and vision coverage through a private health exchange managed by Towers Watson OneExchange. Effective December 31, 2016, Chevron will no longer offer the Chevron Medicare Plus Plan, Chevron Senior Care Plan, Chevron Medicare Standard Plan, the Chevron Medicare Medical HMO Plan, or the Chevron Dental Plan for post-65 participants. Post-65 participants will make enrollment choices with OneExchange in October through December 2016. The Chevron open enrollment period does not apply to post-65 participants.
what about dependents?
The age of eligible participants in your family will dictate if they will enroll in Chevron’s pre-65 group health plans or the post-65 OneExchange individual health options. So, if there are both post-65 and pre-65 eligible participants in your family, pre-65 participants will participate in Chevron group health coverage, and post-65 participants will participate in individual health coverage through OneExchange.
important enrollment milestones
All benefits-eligible retirees and their eligible dependents must enroll in Chevron retiree health coverage upon reaching certain enrollment milestones. If you don't enroll, you will have to wait until the next applicable enrollment milestone, if any, to enroll in the health coverage offered to Chevron retirees. If you miss these select milestones to enroll, you and your eligible dependents may not be able to return to Chevron retiree health coverage in the future.
important new retiree health coverage enrollment milestones
Beginning in 2017, all benefits-eligible retirees and their eligible dependents must enroll in Chevron retiree health coverage upon reaching certain enrollment milestones. In the past you were permitted to waive Chevron retiree health coverage or drop coverage and re-enroll later during an open enrollment period or other qualifying life event. Effective January 1, 2017, after this one-time enrollment opportunity, you will have to wait until the next applicable enrollment milestone, if any, to enroll in the health coverage offered to Chevron retirees. And there are also new restrictions regarding adding dependents to coverage at a later date. If you miss these select milestones to enroll, you and your eligible dependents may not be able to return to Chevron retiree health coverage in the future. It’s important to read about these milestones prior to the upcoming enrollment period.
