If you have some family members with Medicare coverage and others not currently eligible for Medicare, you’re considered a split-Medicare family.

Some UC non-Medicare medical plans have a Medicare version of the plan; for example, Health Net Seniority Plus is the Medicare version of Health Net Blue & Gold and Kaiser Senior Advantage is the Medicare version of Kaiser Permanente. Other UC non-Medicare plans have “partner” plans; for example, the Medicare partner plan to UC Care PPO and Core is the UC Medicare PPO plan.

With both types of plans, you enroll in the non-Medicare version of the plan and your Medicare-enrolled family members are automatically placed in the partner Medicare plan. You may not see the Medicare plan name when you enroll in the non-Medicare plan.

If you enroll a family member in a new Medicare plan, you will need to complete an additional form. For family members in Health Net Seniority Plus or Kaiser Senior Advantage, complete the Medicare Advantage Universal Enrollment/Election form and mail to the plan and the UC Retirement Administration Service Center by Dec. 6, 2017.
