The Center for Health partners with Towers Watson’s OneExchange, one of the nation’s leading providers of health care solutions for Medicare-eligible retirees. The OneExchange program offers assistance in selecting Medicare supplemental health coverage for eligible retirees, spouses and certain disabled participants using individual Medicare supplement plan markets. OneExchange provides a portal to Medicare supplemental plans available from more than 85 health insurers (“carriers”) nationwide, as well as administration for tax-advantaged Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRAs) from which retirees can pay their Medicare supplement premiums.
The OneExchange program allows retirees to customize their Medicare supplement coverage to their own financial and health situations. Current UMC retirees have selected hundreds of different plans that meet their individual needs.
UMC annual conferences and employers can partner with the Center for Health to offer Medicare supplemental coverage through OneExchange. The Center for Health offers assistance with vendor management, communications and eligibility.
Through the Center for Health, UMC annual conferences and employers can adopt OneExchange for their Medicare-eligible population—even though they have not adopted HealthFlex for active clergy and lay employees.
Phone support from OneExchange licensed benefit advisors guides participants through individualized plan selection and enrollment, and provides ongoing support with related questions after enrollment.
As of 2015, 19 annual conferences and UMC employer groups will sponsor OneExchange for their Medicare-eligible retirees.
