UT Benefits for Retired Employees

Premium Sharing, Basic and Optional Coverages

Premium Sharing

As a retired employee, UT and the State of Texas will pay 100% of your premiums for the basic coverage package, and up to 50% of the premiums for your dependents' medical coverage. You are responsible for all optional coverage premiums.

If you are a benefits-eligible retired employee with coverage under another group health plan and elect to waive the basic coverage package you are eligible to use 50% of the state premium sharing to purchase Dental and/or Vision Coverage. If you waive, you will not be enrolled in Basic Group Life Insurance or be eligible for the Living Well Program as those are a part of the Basic Coverage Package.
