Medicare Advantage Retirees

Retirees on Medicare Advantage who do not want to make medical or dental plan changes, do not need to do anything during Open Enrollment 2018, as your coverage will continue unchanged in 2019.

2019 plan highlights

The City of Fort Worth is proud to offer the Medicare Advantage plan to all retirees 65 years or older for the 2019 plan year.
Additionally in 2019, the city will continue to offer the Medicare Advantage plan with no monthly premium to retirees hired prior to 1988 or retirees with 25 years or more of service.

The plan offers medical and dental benefits as well as the following:

  • Free membership in Silver Sneakers.
  • $200 reimbursement for eyewear every 24 months, call Vision Discount Program at 800-793-8616.
  • $2,000 Hearing Aid reimbursement once every 36 months. Call 888-432-7464 for assistance.

The HR Benefits Office encourages retirees to review their benefit options carefully. If you are making plan changes, you will need to submit an enrollment form. Enrollment forms mailed in must be postmarked by October 24, 2018. This includes any dental plan changes or adding a spouse or dependent to your plan.
