Medicare Eligible Employees and Dependents Under Age 65

If you or your dependents are Medicare eligible, you must enroll in Medicare A&B to be eligible for Retiree Healthcare through Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc. You will also need to provide our office with a copy of you or your dependent’s Medicare card. Medicare Coverage will be primary and CIGNA will be your secondary insurance.

You will remain in this plan until you reach age 65 whereby you will be enrolled in the Medicare Supplement Plan with CIGNA.

Spousal Medical Benefits in the Event of Your Death*


In the event of your death, your spouse may continue coverage by paying the required premiums. Medical, vision, and prescription coverages may be continued for your spouse until age 65, provided he or she is not enrolled in any other group health insurance plan(s). After age 65, coverage may be continued under the plan provided for widows at that time.
