For retirees 65 and older

This plan offers complete freedom to receive services from any provider who accepts Medicare.

This plan, administered by UnitedHealthcare, features a different "plan year" from other UK health insurance plans. Your Medicare Advantage plan begins on January 1 and ends on December 31.

Turning 65 soon?

If you are currently enrolled in other UK health insurance plans, you should enroll for Medicare Part B and this plan at least 30 days prior to your 65th birthday. We recommend enrolling 2-3 months before your 65th birthday.

Medicare Advantage coverage will automatically renew each year. To get a copy of the enrollment form for this plan, call 859-257-9519, option 3.

Prescriptions

This plan automatically includes prescription benefit coverage. As a result, you should not apply for a separate Medicare Part D plan.
