It seems as if the TRB had not gotten the Supplemental Plan approved by the Insurance Commission
All members currently covered through Teachers’ Retirement insurance will be receiving a notice from Anthem in regards to the Medicare Supplement plan. The Medicare Supplement plan coverage had to be adjusted to meet certain Connecticut state mandates. The benefits for the Medicare Advantage plan were not impacted.
- Medicare Supplement members will receive a letter explaining the change to their benefits
- Medicare Advantage members will receive a letter explaining the change to the Supplemental benefits and a Special Enrollment form they can complete if they wish to switch to the Supplement plan based on these new benefits.
Don’t throw out this new letter until you read it!
