As a retired employee, the way your UT SELECT Medical Insurance works will vary depending on you and your dependents' Medicare eligibility and your (the retired employee's) employment status.
If you (or one of your dependents) is Medicare eligible, UT SELECT will be your primary insurance and work much the same as that of a regular active employee only with a secondary insurance through Medicare.
If you and your dependents are not Medicare eligible, your UT SELECT Medical plan works the same for you as it does for a regular active employee.
If you (or one of your dependents) is Medicare eligible, UT SELECT Medical insurance will assume that you and any of your Medicare-eligible dependents are enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B regardless of your actual enrollment in Medicare. It is very important that you are enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B if you are eligible for it and your UT insurance is not through active employment. Please see the section on UT SELECT and Medicare for Retired Employees.
If you and your dependents are not Medicare eligible, your UT SELECT Medical plan works the same for you as it does a regular active employee.
For detailed plan information, see the resources listed on the right side of this page.
UT SELECT also provides Prescription Drug Coverage administered by Express Scripts.
The UT SELECT Medical Plan is a self-funded medical PPO plan administered by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, a Division of Health Care Services Corporation, a Mutual Legal Reserve Company, an Independent Licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.
