Garrett County URL Link for Retirees Medicare (Post 65)
In order to take advantage of these new options, beginning January 1, 2017, we will be moving medical plan coverage to a private exchange. As a Medicare (Post 65) eligible plan participant or an under age 65 plan participant who is disabled you will be able to select individual healthcare coverage that fits your needs. After December 31, 2016, the current Medicare (Post 65) retiree medical plans offered by UnitedHealthcare through the Garrett County Employees Health Care Plan will no longer be available.
Garrett County Public Schools will be using the link below for retirees over the age of 65 to access SelectQuote Benefits from the County website as referred to in the Intro Letter and the HRA Letter.
